Pence Speaks at Anti-Abortion Rally, says “Life is Winning Again” Probable Push to Reverse Roe Vs. Wade

Vice President Mike Pence declared that “life is winning again in America” at the annual anti-abortion March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Friday.

A longtime opponent of abortion rights and the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal nationwide, Pence made a personal plea to the audience to embrace “love, not anger” and “compassion, not confrontation” when fighting for their position.

Pence was the first sitting vice president to ever attend the annual march. In the past, like-minded presidents like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush have called into the event to voice their support.

President Donald Trump, in his own characteristic way, tweeted early on Friday: “The #MarchForLife is so important. To all of you marching — you have my full support!”

According to Pence, he was appearing at the behest of Trump.

“President Trump actually asked me to be with you here today,” said Pence before echoing the sentiment expressed in the Commander-in-Chief’s tweet. “He asked me to thank you for your support.”

Although Trump had a long history of publicly stating his support for abortion rights he has reversed himself since becoming a national politician. During the GOP primary race he made headlines and earned widespread criticism for floating the idea that women should be “punished” if they sought an abortion should Roe v. Wade be overturned.
