Mayor Pete Hypocrite

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg told The Hill that he strongly opposes the death penalty because it kills "defenseless" people, yet he is pro-abortion.

In an article where he spoke on his faith, Buttigieg said he would even oppose the death penalty for someone like accused 9/11 planner Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Buttigieg said, "there are people who deserve to die. I just don't know anybody who deserves to kill them."

He added that the "moral consequence of killing somebody who is defenseless for any reason goes against certainly what I've been taught about the way we're supposed to treat human life."

So, it would seem the South Bend mayor is concerned with human life. This is the same man who criticized conservative Christians for using the Bible to combat abortion.
