Pete Buttigieg: ‘I trust women to draw the line’ on abortion

David Sherfinski The Washington TimesMay 20, 2019

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Sunday he trusts women to “draw the line” when it comes to abortion and that “hypotheticals” on late-term abortion are usually set up in order to “provoke” an emotional reaction.

“I believe that the right of a woman to make her own decisions about her reproductive health and her own body is a national right,” Mr. Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, said at a Fox News town hall. “I believe it is an American freedom, and I believe that should be enjoyed by women everywhere.”

Mr. Buttigieg was asked whether he believed there should be any limit on a woman’s right to have an abortion at any stage in the pregnancy.
