Vice President Mike Pence boldly predicted today that abortion will end in America “in our time.”
Speaking at a luncheon in Nashville hosted by the Susan B Anthony List and the Life Issues Institute, the Vice President said, “I truly do believe, if all of us do all that we can, we will once again in our time, restore the sanctity of life to the centre of American Law.”
“I hope you all feel encouraged today, because I know, I do. Having been in the cause all of my adult life, I see more progress in the last year in the cause of life than I have seen in public policy in all of my years.” Pence has been a very vocal supporter of pro-life, anti-abortion policies throughout his political career.
“And I truly do believe that life is winning in America for a variety of reasons,” he said. “Through the generosity of adoptive families that are opening their homes to children,” said the Vice President. “And life is winning through the compassion of caregivers and volunteers at crisis pregnancy centres and faith-based organisations” who offer support, love and encouragement to young pregnant women in crisis.
Speaking directly to the crowd in front of him, Pence said, “Life is winning in America, ultimately, because of all of you, and the people you represent all across this country.”
“I couldn’t be more proud of the pro-life movement,” he said, and of the deep compassion and commitment he sees in those who fight to protect the sanctity of life.
“While we have made much progress, we have much work left to do,” he admonished, so “Let us not weary of doing good.”
“I just know in my heart of hearts, that this will be the generation that restores life in America.”
“I urge you on, and I do so with confidence, with confidence that good news is around the corner in America,” he said. “I have boundless faith in the goodness and decency of the American people; I have boundless confidence in that President that you elected and the pro-life majorities in the Congress of the United States, and in states all across this country.”
“And I have boundless confidence in Him who said, Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you,” said the Vice President, quoting Psalm 139.
“And with faith in all those leaders, faith in all of you, and faith in God,” he said, “I know that, together with you, we will once again live in an America that chooses life.”
