Mayor Pete Buttigieg told a pro-life Democrat at Fox News Channel’s Town Hall meeting that she has no place in today’s Democrat party.
Kristen Day, a 50-year-old member of Democrats For Life, asked if Mayor Pete would support more moderate language in the party platform to “ensure that the party of diversity and inclusion really does include everybody.”
Mayor Pete, who professes to be a Christian, said he stood by the platform’s current language — which supports late-term abortions. (How anyone can be a Christian and support killing a baby on its birthday is beyond me).
Moderator Chris Wallace asked Ms. Day if she was satisfied with the mayor’s response. She replied that she was not.
“The Democratic platform contains language that basically says that we don’t belong, we have no part in the party because it says abortion should be legal up to nine months, the government should pay for it,” she said. “There’s nothing that says people who have different views on this issue should be included in the party.”
She referenced the 1996 party platform that included such language.
“Would you be open to language like that – that really did say our party is diverse and inclusive?”
The mayor replied coldly that he supports the position of his party “that this kind of medical care needs to be available to everyone.”
Kudos to Chris Wallace for asking one of the most important questions of the evening – should pro-life Democrats overlook the issue or go find another party?
“At the end of the day, this is what I believe,” the mayor said – referring to the party platform and his personal beliefs.
