REMINDER: Pence Wants to Ban Abortion Nationwide
August 24, 2023
Mike Pence has spent his entire political career waging war against a woman’s right to choose. With Roe v. Wade overturned because of conservative Supreme Court justices appointed by the Trump-Pence administration, Pence continues to brag about his role in opening the door for a national abortion ban – which he’s promised to sign into law if elected.
Pence has promised to sign a national abortion ban that rips away a woman’s right to choose before many women even know they’re pregnant, and even in cases of an unviable pregnancy.
Pence on whether he would support a six-week national abortion ban: “Well, of course. Look — I’m pro-life. I don’t apologize for it. I believe that we’ve got to do everything in our power to restore the sanctity of life to the center of American law. And I’d support federal legislation in that regard if I was in the Congress or had any other job here in town.”
Pence: “I’d certainly support a heartbeat bill, a six-week bill.”
Pence: “If I was in [Congress] or in a job at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue and they put policy in front of me to limit abortions in the country, I’d certainly support it.”
CNN: “Former Vice President Mike Pence said abortion should be banned when a pregnancy is not viable, according to the Associated Press.”
Pence immediately called for a national abortion ban after the Dobbs decision and has repeatedly bragged about his role in paving the way to overturn Roe v. Wade – all because of the conservative justices appointed by the Trump-Pence administration.
Washington Post: “After saying that ‘life won’ on Friday, Pence, who is considered a potential GOP contender in the 2024 presidential election, went one step further by arguing the court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health should lead to a national ban on abortion.”
Politico: “Pence has repeatedly touted and taken credit for the anti-abortion policies of the Trump administration, openly courting the support of anti-abortion groups as he considers a 2024 run.”
The Hill: “[Pence] called the appointment of three conservative Supreme Court justices one of the ‘great accomplishments’ of the Trump administration. All three of those justices — Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett — voted to overturn Roe v. Wade last summer.”
