Pence: Trump Administration Will Begin Fight Against Abortion Rights On Day One

On Saturday, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence told conservative activists at the Values Voter Summit that a Trump-Pence administration would launch its fight against abortion rights “from the first day we take office.”

After declaring that he wants to “send Roe v. Wade to the ash heap of history where it belongs,” something Trump has promised to do with his Supreme Court appointments, Pence boasted of his own record opposing abortion rights and ran down a litany of anti-choice policies that a Trump White House would champion.

“The days of public funding for Planned Parenthood are over when a Trump-Pence administration arrives in Washington, D.C.,” he said, referring to Trump’s proposal to veto any funding for Planned Parenthood unless the group vows to do away with its abortion services.
