Mike Pence promises an end to safe and legal abortion if Trump is elected.
GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence says Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion, will be overturned if Donald Trump is elected president.
Pence is a dangerous religious extremist. He is anti-science, anti-women, and anti-lgbt. If given the chance, he would make the U.S. a Christian theocracy.
Speaking at a town hall meeting in Grand Rapids, Michigan, earlier this week Pence declared:
We’ll see Roe vs. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs.
Pence went on to stress the importance of electing Trump, so that the GOP presidential nominee would have the opportunity to appoint justices to the Supreme Court:
While we’re choosing a president for the next four years, this next president will make decisions that will impact our Supreme Court for the next 40.…Go tell your neighbors and your friends, for the sake of the rule of law, for the sake of sanctity of life, for the sake of our Second Amendment, for the sake of all our other God-given liberties, we must insure the next president appointing justices to the Supreme Court is Donald Trump.
Pence is right about one thing: the next president will make decisions that will impact our Supreme Court for decades to come.
In fact, a Trump victory could mean much more than an end to safe and legal abortion. It is no exaggeration to say that if Trump wins, it could mean the ruin of the nation. That is why voting is so important.
Bottom line: Trump must be defeated. The only reasonable choice in 2016 is Hillary Clinton.
