US presidential candidate Buttigieg flip-flops on abortion

So, Joe Biden is not the only ‘centrist‘ United States Democratic party presidential candidate flip-flopping on women’s rights.

This 14 June 2010 video from the USA says about itself:

Buttigieg: Abortion Rights Are “Beyond My Pay Grade

Rebel HQ’s Emma Vigeland breaks down Pete Buttigieg‘s past waffling on the issue of abortion rights.

BUTTIGIEG’S TENSE TOWN HALL Pete Buttigieg, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and mayor of South Bend, Indiana, faced emotional community members at a town hall while trying to answer questions about a white police officer who fatally shot a black man in the city last week. [HuffPost]

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was exposed as a political hack and apologist for police violence Sunday when he faced jeers from a crowd of angry residents at a town hall meeting in South Bend, Indiana. The meeting was called to address a recent police murder in the working-class city where Buttigieg is mayor. But after leaving the campaign trail in South Carolina, where the Democratic Party had a series of major events for the presidential candidates, Buttigieg could not quell popular anger over the June 16 police shooting of Eric Jack Logan, an African-American father of five, by a white police officer, Sgt. Ryan O’Neill: here.

Buttigieg has been the most aggressive holder of high-dollar fundraisers, attending dozens of such events, particularly in California and the northeast, and raising much of his money from Silicon Valley and Wall Street. His poll numbers have not responded in direct proportion to the build-up, however. He regularly appears in fifth place, making him the lowest in the top tier of candidates. And his campaign received a significant blow in mid-June with the killing of a black resident of South Bend by a white cop, which forced Buttigieg to leave the campaign trail briefly to deal with the crisis: here.

ZUCKERBERG ADVISED BUTTIGIEG CAMPAIGN Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, privately recommended a handful of potential staffers to Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign. Two of them were hired. [HuffPost]

KING HORRIFIES WORLD WITH RAPE AND INCEST REMARK Racist Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said generations of people would not be here without rape and incest while making the case for anti-abortion legislation without exceptions for victims of those crimes. King is a white supremacist who shared his racist views in an interview with The New York Times. [HuffPost]

RAPE VICTIM ACQUITTED OF STILLBORN MURDER A young rape victim who was suspected of having an abortion and charged with homicide has been acquitted by a judge at a retrial. Evelyn Beatriz Hernandez, now 21, had served 33 months of a 30-year prison sentence when her conviction was overturned in February for lack of evidence and a new trial was ordered. [HuffPost]

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WOMEN CAN’T GET ABORTIONS Women who are blocked from getting abortions face significant financial distress, including higher amounts of debt and increased rates of bankruptcy and eviction, according to a groundbreaking working paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research.
