U.S. News & World Report: Pence Sees End to Abortion ‘In Our Time’
“Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday that he believed abortion could end ‘in our time,’ telling a group of anti-abortion activists they were making historic progress toward their goal of abolishing the procedure. … Pence said President Donald Trump had been the ‘most pro-life president in American history’ and that he believes their administration was presiding over an acceleration of their cause. He pointed in particular to … the reinstating of the so-called Mexico City policy, also called the global gag rule, which prohibits the use of U.S. international aid from going to [foreign] global health organizations that provide education or abortion services…” (Levy, 2/27).
