By Breitbart. Mayor Pete Buttigieg defended his belief that Christians should have a right to abortion, pointing to Scripture stating life begins when a baby breathes.
“You know, there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath,” he said when discussing abortion. “So even that is something we can interpret differently.”
Pro-life Christians frequently cite Jeremiah 1:5 to say that life begins in the womb: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Christians on the left argue that life begins at first breath, citing the account of God creating Adam in the book of Genesis: “Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”
Buttigieg commented on Scripture during a discussion with ‘Charlamagne tha God’ on The Breakfast Club radio show about Republicans’ grip on the Christian vote in America. (Read more from “Pete Buttigieg Attacks Pro-Life Christians” HERE)
