Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said on Sunday that government should not get in the way of women who are seeking an abortion in their final three months of pregnancy.
The Mayor of South Bend, Indiana did admit that women who are six to eight months into their pregnancies have possibly “purchased a crib” or even “perhaps chosen a name.”
Chris Wallace of Fox News could not get Buttigieg to back off of his pro-choice stance at all.
“As horrible as that choice is,’ Buttigieg said, ‘that woman – that family may seek spiritual guidance, they may seek medical guidance – but that decision’s not going to be made any better medically or morally because the government is dictating how that decision should be made.”
Every year six thousand women in America opt for a third trimester abortion. That’s less than one percent of the approximately 700,000 abortions that happen in the United States every year.

There are seven countries in the world that allow elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and the United States is one of them.
President Trump had questions regarding why Fox News is dedicating air time to someone like Buttigieg.
….who got them there. Chris Wallace said, “I actually think, whether you like his opinions or not, that Mayor Pete has a lot of substance…fascinating biography.” Gee, he never speaks well of me – I like Mike Wallace better…and Alfred E. Newman will never be President!

If Buttigieg were elected president, he would be the youngest president of all-time. Also, he is the youngest of the 24 Democratic presidential candidates.
According to a poll by Real Clear Politics, Buttigieg is ranked fifth among the Democratic primary polls at 7 percent.
