As a progressive, Pete Buttigieg supports abortion.
However, the 2020 hopeful surely cannot approve of the fetal remains found in the Illinois home of a deceased doctor who performed abortions in South Bend, Indiana — Buttigieg’s hometown. Now, the Democrat is demanding an investigation into the matter, according to the Daily Mail.
“There’s no question that what happened is disturbing. It’s unacceptable. And it needs to be looked into fully,” Buttigieg said.
A startling discovery
Dr. Ulrich Klopfer had been performing abortions in South Bend for years. In fact, he was actually working out of three clinics throughout Indiana — that is, until his license was suspending in 2016 for “failure to exercise reasonable patient care and violating multiple notice and documentation requirements.”
Klopfer recently passed away, and upon his death, his family made some rather startling discoveries at his Illinois home: the remains of more than 2,000 fetuses.
Authorities were subsequently called and the remains were turned over to the local coroner’s office.
Pete makes a statement
Even though the discovery was made about a week ago, presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has been eerily silent about the whole thing.
This is of note because Buttigieg is the current mayor of South Bend, Indiana, where Klopfer used to practice.
On Tuesday night, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson called out Buttigieg for not having made a statement on the discovery yet — and apparently, Buttigieg was listening. The 2020 hopeful spoke to the local media in South Bend on Wednesday to make his first statement on the subject.
“Like everyone, I find the news of out Illinois very disturbing, and I think it’s important that it be fully investigated,” he said. “I also hope it doesn’t get political at a time when women need access to health care.”
Sadly, Buttigieg’s narrative of abortion as “health care” goes right along with how other Democrats have referred to abortions as a form of contraceptive.
We hate to break it to you Pete, but as long as you mischaracterize the murder of unborn children as “health care,” this story will be political.
