Mike Pence Accepts Nomination to be Republican Party’s Vice Presidential nominee

by | Aug 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — On Wednesday night, Mike Pence formally accepted the nomination to be the Republican Party’s nominee for Vice President. President Trump and Vice President Pence have the support of millions of pro-life Americans because of their dedication to our most fundamental right—the right to life.

“With gratitude for the confidence President Donald Trump has placed in me, the support of our Republican party, and the grace of God, I humbly accept your nomination to run and serve as Vice President of the United States,” Pence said.

“Vice President Pence is a pro-life champion,  and we are truly grateful for his efforts on behalf of unborn babies and their mothers, those with disabilities, the elderly, and the medically infirm,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “President Trump and Vice President Pence will continue to lead us toward a day when all innocent human lives are protected by law.”

In comparison, Sen. Kamala Harris, the Democratic Party’s candidate for Vice President, has a history of supporting abortion on demand for any reason, at anytime, anywhere.

While running for President, Sen. Harris introduced her “Reproductive Rights Act” action plan. Included in her plan were a series of sweeping pro-abortion policies and directives, such as

  • States and localities would be subject to a “preclearance requirement” if those states had a “pattern of violating Roe v. Wade in the preceding 25 years.” The “patterns” in question would be determined by the Department of Justice (DOJ).
  • “No abortion law or practice will take effect until the Department of Justice certifies it comports with Roe v. Wade.”
  • States would have to “prove any new law or practice does not deny or abridge” the so-called “right” to abortion.
  • States and localities would be “required to submit any proposed change to DOJ. If the jurisdiction is unable to prove the change comports with Roe and the Women’s Health Protection Act, DOJ must object to the change.”

To ensure that states would be forced into lockstep with the pro-abortion policies her administration would have pursued,

  • A Department of Justice in a Harris Administration would have “an affirmative duty to review submissions and make formal determinations” regarding any pro-life laws passed by states or localities.
  • Abortionists would have “the ability to challenge DOJ’s approval of a law or practice in federal court, serving as a check on hostile administrations.”

As a presidential candidate, Sen. Harris promised to protect Planned Parenthood from attempts to defund the abortion giant. In addition, she vowed to only nominate judges who would support the Roe v. Wade abortion-on-demand decision and would work to reverse the Hyde Amendment and use federal tax dollars to pay for abortion. Were she to be President, her administration would promote abortion around the world.
