Mike Pence Claims A Donald Trump Presidency Will Overturn Roe V. Wade

Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump has been … less than clear on what policies he actually believes in and plans to implement should he be elected president. Luckily, he’s got VP pick Mike Pence to make life under a Trump presidency clear and it’s scary as all hell. The Indiana governor said that Trump’s reign would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that made abortion legal in all 50 states.

Pence was outlining the stakes of the current election during a town hall speech in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His comments came after he pointed out that the next POTUS will likely appoint multiple Supreme Court justices, determining the ideological bent of the Court for the foreseeable future.

“I’m pro-life and I don’t apologize for it,” he told the crowd, according to the Los Angeles Times. “We’ll see Roe vs. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs.”

Prior to his presidential run, Trump was pretty liberal with regards to abortion rights. However, his recent comments on the subject show that he probably wouldn’t stand in the way of Pence’s plan.

“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,” Pence said. “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 2nd 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.”

(Unrelated reminder that Pence oversaw the first of the discriminatory “Religious Freedom” laws in the country.)

Pence may not realize it, but he’s making the case for hesitant liberals and Berniebros to vote for Hillary Clinton. #GirlIGuessImWithHer just got a bit more frantic.
