Rhyan Glezman, the older brother of the man to whom Buttigieg is married, Chasten Glezman, felt that he just couldn’t stand by and watch as Buttigieg gave credence to the idea that, according to the Bible, life starts with the first breath. “I feel a sense of responsibility to my faith to stand up and say something, to say, ‘No that’s not true,’” he said Friday morning on the radio show The Breakfast Club. “God places a very high value on all human life. Everyone is created fearfully and wonderfully in the image of God, with intrinsic value. That doesn’t start with the first breath; it starts when we enter our mother’s womb.”
Glezman acknowledged that parts of the Bible do speak of life in terms of breath. And considering the complexity of the question of when life begins, he had some criticism of Republicans for the way “they hold everybody in line with this one piece of doctrine about abortion,” when it’s “obviously a tough issue for a lot of people to think through morally.” (I assume by “one piece of doctrine” he meant the belief that life begins at the moment of conception.)
At the same time, he said, the political doctrine pushed by every one of the Democratic presidential candidates dictates that abortion any time right up through birth is the absolute right of every woman. Using the Bible to defend that or to suggest that it is what God wants is a false teaching.
“When I look at every single one of them,” he said of the candidates, “their policies, their beliefs, it’s very anti-American. It’s very anti-life. It’s very anti-God. They all have the same rhetoric, and that’s the path they’re deciding to go down. You see it right down the board. I don’t know why a Democrat can’t come out and say, ‘I believe life in the womb is valuable.’”
