Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was confronted by a 7-year-old girl at a campaign event in New Hampshire.
The young girl asked the presidential candidate a question on abortion,
“Mayor Buttigieg, I have listened to you in the debates, and learned some stuff about you, and that you believe in a woman’s right to choose about her own body. I agree with that. No one should mess with or choose about my body except me and my parents because I’m still a child.”
Buttigieg responded to the girl with this answer,
“Well, first of all, thanks for speaking up about this, and thanks for being here, and I wish I was as tuned in to big issues when I was 7 as you seem to be. This is a hard issue for a lot of people because they believe different things – and where I live, people believe different things, including people that I respect. But the way I think about it is that this choice, it’s about drawing a line, and we might each, following our own beliefs, have a different idea about where to draw the line.
What I hope everybody, or at least most of us, can agree on is who gets to draw the line – and that’s the person making the decision, that’s the woman in question. And I trust women to make that choice. I don’t think that choice is easy. I know that it’s not going to be any better because the government’s saying what it ought to be. I trust women to make that choice. And it sounds like you and I view this issue the same way.”
No, Pete. She does not view it the same as you.
Pete Buttigieg is no moderate.

The laws and the judgments of the politicians are far out of step with what the rest of the country wants. These officials are elected to make the decisions that WE want to be made on our behalf. They are not supposed to judge based on what they want. If the people of the state of Georgia want abortion to be illegal in their state, then their congressional leaders should vote according to that view regardless of if they agree or disagree.
Based on a Gallup survey, 81% of people want abortion to be illegal in the 3rd term, 65% say it should be illegal in the 2nd term, and 50% believe it is morally wrong (42% do not believe it is morally wrong).
Therefore, since the majority of Americans believe it should be illegal, it should be illegal.
