Rewire Examines Vice President Mike Pence’s Comments On Abortion At March For Life

Rewire: Pence Says Science Supports Anti-Choice Policies — It Doesn’t
Ally Boguhn, political and campaigns editor at Rewire, discusses Vice President Mike Pence’s remarks at Friday’s March for Life in Washington, D.C., on science and abortion, writing, “Vice President Mike Pence claimed that the ‘steady advance of science’ was aiding the anti-choice crusade … Pence lauded President Donald Trump’s move to reinstate the anti-choice ‘global gag rule’ restriction, also known as the ‘Mexico City policy,’ as proof that the administration is ‘in the promise-keeping business.’ … Pence promised the anti-choice marchers that the Trump administration would ‘work with Congress to end taxpayer funding for abortion and abortion providers, and we will devote those resources to health-care services for women across America.’ The Hyde Amendment already ensures that federal funding does not go to abortion care.” (1/27).
