Fact Check: Pete Buttigieg Claims Late-Term Abortions Are Due to ‘Devastating Medical News’


CLAIM: A prior claim by failed Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has “resurfaced,” according to Newsweek, and it holds that most women decide to have very late-term abortions due to suddenly revealed “devastating medical news.”

VERDICT: False today, just as it was in the past.

Buttigieg’s past comments from 2019 and earlier this year, however, still wowed actress Meredith Salenger on Monday:

Twitter user Stephanie Clay also responded to the falsehood, calling it “the most incredible answer on late term abortions.”

“We need to be able to acknowledge that being pro birth is about control,” Clay added. “That’s it.”
