(Claremont, NH-AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttiegieg says he trusts women on whether to have late-term abortions. During a Fox News town hall last night, the South Bend, Indiana mayor deflected a question about late-term abortions.
Fox News anchor Chris Wallace asked Buttiegieg if he believes there should be any limit on a woman’s right to an abortion at any point in their pregnancy. The candidate said the debate over abortion has “gotten so caught up in where you draw the line.
I trust women to draw the line.” Buttiegieg said fewer than one-percent of abortions in the U.S. are performed during the third trimester of pregnancy
