The Indiana State Department of Health does not trust an abortion facility to properly care for women and meet basic safety and medical standards. But if you’re Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, your love for abortion trumps any concern for the law or women’s safety, so you allow it to open. Plus, Mayor Pete is also very good at multi-tasking. At the same time he’s telling abortionists they’re above the law, he still has time to put all his energy into stopping a free, pro-life pregnancy resource center from opening next door.
According to the Chicago Tribune, “A federal judge in May granted a preliminary injunction allowing Whole Woman’s Health of South Bend to perform medication abortions even as the clinic remains unlicensed by the Indiana State Department of Health, pending the outcome of a lawsuit filed by the clinic’s owner. The state has appealed the temporary opening to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.”
The Tribune continues, “The clinic’s tenuous survival has been championed by South Bend mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, whose national campaign includes a pro-reproductive rights platform.”
Pete Buttigieg allowed an unlicensed abortion facility to operate in South Bend, while fighting a free, pro-life pregnancy resource center. These are not the characteristics of an ethical leader.

Yes. Buttigieg, who supports the pro-infanticide agenda of the Democratic Party, has put his weight behind allowing an unlicensed abortion mill to operate. At the same time, don’t forget that he fought the opening of a pro-life pregnancy resource center.
He tried to claim it was a simple zoning issue, but revealed in his veto it was because he serves as a handmaid to the abortion lobby. Buttigieg stated, “In my judgment, the neighborhood would not benefit from having the zoning law changed in order to place next door to each other two organizations with deep and opposite commitments on the most divisive social issue of our time” according to the Federalist.
Students for Life protested the unlicensed abortion facility in June. At the time, Lily Hutkowski, the Indiana Regional Coordinator stated, “Risking Hoosiers’ lives by operating an unmonitored, unregulated, and undercover abortion vendor is irresponsible and sets up a house of card in our community that will end in a deadly collapse on the people who go there. Why would we allow anyone to operate a surgical center like a child’s lemonade stand, set up without proper protections, just because an abortion vendor wants to be in business?”
As the Democratic Party lurches farther to the Left, the infanticide wing of the party may have found another water-carrier in Mayor Buttigieg, who loves abortion so much that he supports unlicensed abortion facilities and takes advice from the abortion lobby.
