Pete Buttigieg: ‘Unknowable’ When
Human Life Begins

Original Article

Mayor Pete Buttigieg claimed Thursday that it was unknowable when human life begins, making the issue of abortion too complicated to regulate.“For those who have a strong view about some of these almost unknowable questions around life, the best answer I can give, is that because we will never be able to settle those questions, in a consensus fashion,” he said in response to a question about abortion limits.Buttigieg commented on the issue of abortion during a conversation with Washington Post reporter Robert Costa. When asked to clarify his claim that it was “unknowable” when life began,

The problem of answering the question of life begins is only for those who favor abortion and/or infanticide. If you try to pinpoint some period between conception and birth, then there is no logical point at which one can say ANYTHING that is strongly definitive. Who really knows when an unborn for sure feels and knows pain? Who knows for sure when the unborn has reached 'viability' in which the child could survive outside the womb? And on this point, how viable is a 6 month old baby? Take away the care of that child by an adult and no child under age 18 months could possibly survive. If you want to think about this logically, life either begins at conception or it begins at birth. Everything in the middle is muddy and gray. If life begins at conception then any abortion is murder. Those who believe life begins at the moment of conception are content with that answer and their logical processes do not crumble at the ramifications of holding to that belief. Those who cling to the notion that life begins at birth, however, still have to struggle with what is the real difference between a baby 5 minutes before birth and a baby 5 minutes after birth. They cannot point to anything really other than being separate from the mother. And even to many dark-hearted abortion lovers, the idea of a partial birth abortion is strongly off-putting. All but the most evil of the lot recognize that late term abortions are wrong for some reason they are not willing to put their finger on. And this pushes them right back into the muddy waters of something in between conception and birth. The ONLY answer that holds up under any form of scrutiny is that life begins at the moment the process of life begins - at conception.

I guess the science isn't settled. But we know the date certain in 12 years when the global warming finally extinguishes all human life. That science is known to a metaphysical certitude.

Buttigieg followed his rejection of life in the womb by urging Christians to join him on the principle of helping “the least among us.” “If by chance, your view on that issue is motivated by faith, I would point out that this is also a moment for people of faith to think about what it means to support policies and politicians who care about lifting up the least among us,” he said. The least among us. Who would that be, exactly? It's the infant having his or her living brains sucked out. When it's over the mother takes a cab home.

If it's not a living thing at conception, what is it? At conception, a child has all that is necessary to function as a human being; body parts, DNA, chromosomes, everything.

This man claims to be a ''Christian'' but is not willing to accept the Bible as truth when he ignores Jeremiah 1:5 ''Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.'' Maybe he should drop out of the race to the nomination. He either doesn't know anything, doesn't even suspect anything or totally ignores everything except smashing his aberrant lifestyle in my face. Life begins when the Creator begins it.

FTA: "He argued that government should not draw any legal limits on abortion, leaving the choice solely to pregnant women." What about the fathers? Current policies allow them no legal rights to participate in abortion decisions, yet requires that they be legally responsible for financial support in the event the child is born. This is schizophrenic!!

perhaps, but various points in time after it begins can be known with certainty: for dims, perhaps 6 months after birth would be noncontroversial; for sane people, the third trimester would be uncontroversial. But the EXACT moment might be unknowable.

The Democrats claim that Christians are anti-science because they don't accept that life on earth somehow sprang into being from inorganic matter--even though science has no explanation for how that happened. But they reject the basic biological fact that human life begins at conception, when DNA, with the full genetic code of the new person, is formed.

Mayor Buttofajoke was ccnfused. He thought question was “When does human life begin for a Democrat”. Which is why he responded with “That’s unknowable”. What’s tragic for our country is that the majority of Democrats consider his heartless answer as acceptable.

FTA: "He warned that attempts to overturn Roe vs. Wade would inevitably lead to more unsafe illegal abortions that would harm more women." No, Buttboi, getting rid of Roe v. Wade would turn the issue back to the states where it belongs. As evidenced by the rash of infanticide legislation being proposed in a number of states, women will be able to find a willing provider. It may involve crossing a state line, but I'm sure some compassionate prog outfit will help arrange transit.

I'll take that. So, if it's unknowable, then we need to err on the absolute maximum possibility of life, right? If you don't know if you're killing a life, then we ought not do it, right? Sounds like an argument for life begins at conception.

Adapting the phrase from the Roman poet Horace, Wilfred Owen during World War I turned "it is was sweet and seemly to die for one’s country" into an anti-war poem. He may have had a point when it came to that war, a war that destroyed the very best of Europe’s young men and, in my view, set it on a downward spiral. Today Western Europe, with all its glorious architecture, art, and music seems like a living Disneyland.Take, for example, the fire that gobbled up the roof and spire of one of Paris’ most enduring symbols, Notre Dame.
