(RoyalPatriot.com )- During a speech on Tuesday at the Young America’s Foundation annual student conference in Washington, D.C., former vice president Mike Pence demanded that abortion rights be repealed from coast to coast.
According to reports, Pence said, “I stand before you today with a grateful heart that after nearly 50 years of lives of incalculable value lost to our nation, 50 years of heartbreak, 50 years of praying, fasting, working, volunteering, and caring,” before taking some of the credit for the significant change in abortion rights nationwide following the recent overturning of the 1973 case Roe v. Wade.
Pence said that Roe v. Wade was consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs last month, at long last, with the help of three Supreme Court judges nominated under the Trump-Pence administration.
He said that in a very genuine sense, he’s merely reached the end of the beginning. Our generation and fellow conservatives must present the argument for life in every state and statehouse in America. Pence said that our freedom agenda demands that pro-life legislation be advanced in every state in the country.
According to The New York Post, Pence advocated defunding Planned Parenthood, ending taxpayer funding of abortions, increasing support for crisis pregnancy centers, and revising adoption laws.
Pence reportedly added, “You can’t be pro-life if you’re not pro-adoption.”
He continued by saying that, in his opinion, the restoration of every American-born’s inalienable right to life is “inextricably tied” to the country’s “destiny.”
The 48th vice president declared, “We rescue the babies; we’ll preserve America.”
The conference, hosted by the Young America’s Foundation, started on Monday and is expected to end on Saturday, according to the Post. Pence belongs to the group as a Ronald Reagan Presidential Scholar.
On Tuesday, Pence spoke only a few hours before former President Donald Trump was scheduled to deliver the main presentation at the two-day conference of the America First Policy Institute at around 3 p.m.
The former president’s address is his first public appearance in the nation’s capital since he left office.
