How do people take Pete Buttigieg seriously?
The South Bend mayor recently suggested that life only begins when a baby takes its first breath.
He even claims there’s evidence of this in the Bible. Wow.

Buttigieg On Abortion: Parts Of The Bible Say That Life Begins At Breath, You Know
Thus spaketh the holiest man in progressive America, a guy whose shtick all year on the trail has been to try to put religious conservatives on defense by insisting that he’s a better Christian than they are. That’s clever for many reasons, starting with the fact that talking often about his faith is a way for Buttigieg to blunt attacks that a gay man can’t properly govern a Christian country like the United States.
It’s also clever in appealing on a gut level to Democrats, who’ve been lectured for decades by the religious right on their moral failings. Now here comes Mayor Pete to assure them that they, not Republicans, are the true followers of Christ’s example. Imagine how gratifying that must be for them.
He’s not going to be the nominee but he might end up carving out a niche as a surrogate next year in which he travels around reminding Democratic audiences that, as it happens, their policy preferences match up letter-perfectly with “true Christianity” the way Jesus wanted people to practice it.

SICK: Part-Time Mayor Pete Buttigieg appears to justify abortion even *after* a baby is born, suggesting life does not begin until a baby takes its first breath.

Check out some of the responses to this:
Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations."

It’s not just the part-time mayor, it’s the whole demwhit party. He just reflects what the party believes. They don’t deserve to win another election, even dog catcher.

The baby breathes through the mother by the umbilical cord that is why if a cord get tangled it can suffocate the baby from lack of oxygen. I can not understand how people do not understand that a baby is living can move and tumble around within the womb.

You can see baby’s trying to breathe in the womb during 3rd trimester/ they are living human beings in the womb

It sounds like Mayor Pete needs to go back to Sunday school.
And science class.
