A veteran of the pro-life movement says a Democratic presidential candidate needs a few lessons about science and the Bible.
The candidate is Pete Buttigieg, the longshot nominee who sometimes mixes biblical passages with left-wing talking points on the campaign trail.
Most recently, however, the South Bend mayor bizarrely suggested that human life only begins with a baby’s first breath outside the womb.
LifeNews.com reports that Buttigieg was discussing abortion when he told a radio show that there are “lots of parts of the Bible” that describe how life “begins with breath, and so even that is something that we can interpret differently.”
Jim Sedlak of the American Life League calls it “ridiculous” to make such a suggestion and use the Bible to defend it.
“To think that God says, Before you were formed in the womb, I knew you,” Sedlak observes. “And to say that taking the first breath, which actually is after birth, that you can kill the newly created human being made by God, and somehow justify it by the Bible, is absolutely ridiculous.”
Sedlak points out that Buttigieg, who is homosexual, has used the Bible to justify that lifestyle, too, which Sedlak calls “absolutely wrong” to claim.
“He is just trying to justify what he's doing in any way,” says the pro-life activist.
Buttigieg is currently polling fifth among Democratic candidates with an average of 4.3 percent among voters according to RealClearPolitics.
