[Ed. – What else is new?]
Bringing up the subject of late-term abortion, host Meghan McCain mentioned comments from September in which Buttigieg appeared to support abortion up until birth.
“My point is that it shouldn’t be up to a government official to draw the line, it should be up to the woman who’s confronted with the choice,” he responded, echoing a typical Democratic talking point.
McCain pushed, “What about infanticide?”
Buttigieg built the pathos of the situation, implying that a woman only chooses late-term abortion when she learns something “excruciating” about her child. Could it be that she simply wants to abort her baby with special needs?
Buttigieg insisted that if a woman is in the situation where she’s considering a late-term abortion, “I trust her.”
The audience erupted with applause.
