Science has been very clear in recent years, siding with the pro-life movement’s contention that life begins at conception. Even at the germinal stage of post-fertilization development, consensus of scholars from scientists to philosophers agree that this is, indeed, a life. They argument has been settled for most – life begins at conception.
Where the sides diverge is on where to draw the line for when that life is considered a person. Some say it’s at the first heartbeat, around six weeks after conception. Others say it’s at the point of viability, around 20 weeks, when a baby can realistically be expected to survive outside of the womb. Others say it’s at the point of birth. Many on the far left have been pushing the notion that it’s actually slightly beyond birth, saying an unwanted baby who has been born still doesn’t qualify for protections as a person.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a top-5 candidate for the Democratic nominee for president, cited the Bible as saying life begins at first breath. The left, which is against any Biblical worldview that doesn’t align with their secular worldview, has no problem with this assessment despite constantly saying the Bible cannot be used as a basis for pro-life arguments. As long as it supports their argument, they’re perfectly fine with the Mayor invoking it.
Buttigieg suggests we determine life when the baby draws its first breath.
A 2020 presidential candidate is suggesting babies can be killed up UNTIL a baby draws its first breath.

It takes a hardcore desire to achieve personal gain for someone to warp their Biblical understanding in ways that will match their own rhetoric. This happens at times on the right when people misuse the Bible to defend racism or oppose interracial marriages. But it’s also a tool for the left, as Buttigieg is wielding it here.
There’s a dangerous trend in the pro-abortion movement. They are becoming less argumentative about when life begins and more militant about defending the rights of the mother over the baby. In other words, they’re no longer saying the baby doesn’t have the right to live. They’re saying the baby’s rights are subjective based on the desire of the parents. What Buttigieg’s comments do is solidify this argument for many on the left.
But it doesn’t end there. As mentioned before, a growing number of progressives are pushing the boundaries well beyond “1st breath.” Even if a baby is born alive after a failed abortion, their claims are the baby should be allowed to die without assistance or nourishment. This is a heinous perspective, one that is a stain on the soul of this country. If this is ever allowed to become the law of the land, as many are pushing it to be, God help us.
“There’s a lot of parts of the bible that talk about how life begins with breath. Even that is something that we can interpret differently.” – Pete Buttigieg
This is what makes Buttigieg such a dangerous candidate if he wins the nomination. He won’t just attack conservatives and the President. He’ll wage an assault on the Bible with his skewed perspectives, taking his arguments to the mainstream.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
