SBA List Responds to Buttigieg’s Comments on The View

This morning Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, in an appearance on ABC’s The View, again refused to back any limit whatsoever on abortion – even partial-birth abortion – or to support protections for babies born alive. In response, the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) issued the following statement:

“Pete Buttigieg is no moderate when it comes to abortion, refusing on national television to repudiate partial-birth abortion or support protections for babies born alive,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “On the heels of his town hall comments denying pro-life Democrats a voice within the party, Buttigieg doubles down on support for partial-birth abortion – a barbaric practice in which an unborn child in late pregnancy is partially delivered and killed by stabbing the base of her skull with scissors. There is no justification for such inhumanity, which is why a national ban passed Congress with bipartisan support, including Joe Biden. Pete Buttigieg is so extreme, he even refuses to protect babies who survive abortions. This is an enormous moral and political mistake. Polling shows 44% of rank-and-file Democrats and 62% of Independents want to vote for a candidate who supports common-ground limits on abortion. For voters repelled by the Democrats’ extreme abortion agenda, there is only one choice come November: Donald Trump, our pro-life president.”
