VP Pence Addresses Issue of Abortion at Pro-Life Susan B. Anthony Institute

Vice President Mike Pence praised President Donald Trump as the “most pro-life president in American history” and said Democrats have grown out of touch with most Americans on the issue of abortion.

Speaking at a luncheon in Nashville, Tennessee, hosted by the Susan B. Anthony List & Life Institute, a pro-life organization, Pence brought greetings from President Trump and emphasized that under his administration, “life is winning in America.”

“Think about it,” he said. “From the very first day of this administration, President Trump has been keeping his word, standing without apology for the sanctity of human life. A president that, in our first week, reinstated the Mexico City Policy to prevent American tax dollars from funding organizations that promote or perform abortions beyond our borders and in fact expanded the policy to cover nearly 9 billion dollars in foreign aid.”

“An administration,” he continued, “that stopped U.S. funding of the United Nations Population Fund so American taxpayers are no longer forced to support abortion around the world.”

Pence recalled how last year he cast the tie-breaking vote that passed an anti-Planned Parenthood bill which allows states to withhold federal funds from Planned Parenthood and pro-abortion organizations.

The VP reminded audiences that during the 2018 March for Life, President Trump promised to “always defend the very first right in the Declaration of Independence, and that is the ‘right to life.'”

“And I can assure the president is keeping that word every single day,” he said, pointing out that Trump has surrounded himself with men and women who will uphold the God-given liberties outlined in the U.S. Constitution.

“I really do believe that life is winning in America for a variety of reasons,” Pence said. “Life is winning through the generosity of millions of adoptive families that are opening their homes to children. Life is winning through the caregivers and volunteers at crisis pregnancy centers and faith-based organizations that are coming alongside young women with crisis pregnancy with support and with love and encouragement.”

“I couldn’t be more proud of the deep compassion of the pro-life movement and the continued commitment to be there to love them both,” he said.
