Mike Pence attended a Nashville lunch hosted by anti-choicers the "Susan B. Anthony List & Life Institute."
He told them exactly what they wanted to hear, predicting that legal abortion would end in the U.S. "in our time."
"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."
No word about guns, hunger, substandard housing, lead-infected water, or any of the other causes that end the lives of children every day. And no word about that law on the books that has already reduced abortion rates significantly: The Affordable Care Act.
But NARAL had the perfect response to Pence:
“The comments today made by Mike Pence, who lives and breathes an anti-choice agenda, are indicative of how much this Administration is trying to ‘normalize’ the idea of a world in which women don’t get to decide their own destinies or control their own bodies. This is the future that Mike Pence envisioned today, and it’s a future that the majority of Americans reject. We look forward to when Mike Pence’s tenure in the White House ends, which will most certainly be ‘in our time.’”
