It’d be hard to imagine a better  match for pro-life President Donald Trump than Vice President Mike Pence, who has defended the unborn with grace and passion for decades.

Mr. Pence is on a multi-date  “Life Win” tour which Clare Marie Merkowsky tells us began “by visiting a pregnancy center before speaking at a Christian church.”

While visiting A Woman’s Place Medical Clinic, Mr. Pence “met Kia, a mother who had considered aborting her child but changed her mind after visiting the clinic,” Merkowsky wrote. He then tweeted, “Thank you to A Women’s Place Medical Clinic for the work you’re doing to save the innocent lives of the unborn, including 10,000 babies in the last 35 years & 500 babies within the last 12 months,” adding, “I couldn’t be more proud to be part of the most Pro-Life Administration in history!” 

Vice President Pence then gave an interview to David Brody, the influential chief political correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network. (According to the New York Times, “Mr. Brody interviewed Mr. Trump eight times during the [2026] campaign.” )

Mr. Pence laid out the case for President Trump at the same time he blasted pro-abortion former Vice President Joe Biden for having “Been Overtaken by the Radical Left” on Issues such as abortion and religious liberties.

Brody stated, “Joe Biden has always said as a Catholic that he’s personally pro-life but professionally, politically, he’s pro-choice as he calls it. What do you make of that dichotomy, if you will, or that difference?” 

Vice President Pence responded

“Joe Biden and the Democratic Party have been overtaken by the radical Left. And as you said, Joe Biden for years, like many Democrats, was willing to support what was known as the Hyde Amendment, which would prevent taxpayer funding from being used to pay for abortions. But now Joe Biden has even abandoned that. Joe Biden would support public funding of abortions. He’s calling for a historic increase in funding to Planned Parenthood of America. He would appoint activist judges to our courts, who would literally trample on the progress that we’ve made on life and religious liberties. I just think that the choice in this election has never been clearer and the stakes for people who cherish life and religious liberty have never been higher.” 

After addressing other issues over which President Trump and Mr. Biden disagree fundamentally, Mr. Pence concluded

“I think the choice is clear. We need four more years of President Donald Trump in the White House.”
