Former Vice President Mike Pence said in an interview recorded after Supreme Court oral arguments on the Mississippi abortion case last week that he now knows the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion on the federal level will be overturned, either with the Mississippi case or a future one.
“I don’t know if we will overturn Roe v. Wade in this case, I don’t know if it will happen now,” Pence said. “But I know it will happen. Not just because of the renewed conservative majority on the Supreme Court, but because of this extraordinary generation of conservatives that President Trump appointed to our courts all across the country.”
Pence gave the ultimate credit for the eventual change in abortion law to pro-life workers across the country over the last 50 years.
“I think the President would be quick as I am to say that where the real credit is due is among your listeners who for almost a half a century have never given up on the cause of life, have worked, have prayed, have given, have advocated, have supported pro-life candidates from our ticket to the Congress to state houses to city halls all across America,” Pence said.
He said the pro-life movement now is stronger than it has ever been before.
