I just made the switch. His interview with Rachael made the difference

I love his platform, love his realness and his vision for tomorrow.

I think we have found our new President

1. I switched yesterday. I had been leaning towards him the last

 

couple of weeks, but wanted to remain as neutral as I could. But he kept pulling me and yesterday pulled me all the way over.

5. So far I'd like him at least as VP

 

If his policy is far enough left he will move up to #1 for me.

6. I saw both that and long TMZ interview

 

He gets very folksy in that one, itís like you get to see all facets of him.

I could tell when they asked him about food because his husband posts about it all the time he didnít answer to get votes, he just said I am hooked to this fair food junk food now from going to so many.

He said he liked classical music now the most knowing itís what he likes not most people.

9. I'm-a-leaning!

 

Buttigieg is a truly impressive person and, seemingly, politician.

I want to know more about his policies, though.

10. One issue I have not heard him speak on, and I can't find it online...

 

Is women's reproductive rights. I know he probably has all the right ideas, I just want to hear him say it or read it in his policy stances. He is, after all, very Christian. I know that doesn't necessarily mean "pro-life" but it gives me pause.

Anyone know a link I can read?

11. Buttigieg is firmly Pro Choice

 

He is against further restrictions on late term abortion.

SCARBOROUGH: Do you support the late-term abortion legislation that was passed in the New York state legislature, as well as in Virginia?

BUTTIGIEG: I donít think we need more restrictions right now. And, you know, what Iíve learned in Indiana, being in a place where a lot of my friends, a lot of my supporters even, come from a different place than I do -being pro-choice, I just believe that when a woman is in that situation, and when weíre talking about some of those situations covered by that law Ė extremely difficult, painful, often medically serious situations where life or health of the mother is at stake Ė the involvement of a male government official like me is not helpful.

From his Announcement speech: ďWomenís equality is freedom, because youíre not free if your reproductive health choices are dictated by male politicians or bossesĒ. (which covers both contraception and abortion)

Google Buttigieg and abortion. Iím not going to post links because the most informative are RW pro life advocates.
