Sinister Theocrat: Vice President Mike Pence promises legal abortion will end “in our time” while speaking at an anti-abortion event in Tennessee.
Pence, speaking at a lunch with the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List in Nashville, Tennessee, predicted that legal abortion will end “in our time” while praising the Trump administration’s attack on a woman’s right to reproductive freedom.
Calling Trump the “most pro-life president in American history,” Pence told the anti-women, anti-abortion, conservative Christian crowd:
I know in my heart of hearts this will be the generation that restores life in America.
If all of us do all we can, we can once again, in our time, restore the sanctity of life to the center of American law.
I see more progress in the last year in the cause of life than I have seen in public policy in all of my years.
Pence is not wrong about the progress being made to limit women’s reproductive freedom. The Hill reports:
Since President Trump took office last year, he has signed legislation reversing an Obama-era rule that blocked states from defunding Planned Parenthood and reinstated a ban on federal funds for global health programs that cover or promote abortions.
And this is not the first time Pence has promised to end legal abortion in America. In fact, it was a theme of the 2016 campaign.Speaking at a town hall meeting in Grand Rapids, Michigan, during the campaign, Pence declared:
We’ll see Roe vs. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs.
Ultimately, Pence, who is fond of saying he is “a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order,” is an anti-science, anti-gay, anti-woman, religious extremist.
The former Indiana Governor and current Vice President is a conservative Christian nightmare who rejects the separation of church and state, and places his Christian faith above the U.S. Constitution.
Pence is a radical religious extremist – a cold, cruel, Christian extremist. If given the chance, a President Pence would ruin the nation and turn the U.S. into a Christian theocracy.
Bottom line: Vice President Mike Pence promises that legal abortion will end “in our time.”
And the Republican war on women continues.
