One of the most important issues for social conservatives has been the issue of abortion and how the next president will rein in liberals’ attempts to devalue the sanctity of life.
Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence recently gave voters a glimpse of what they could expect from a GOP-led executive branch in regards to this life-or-death issue.
In an interview with Fox News that aired Sunday, the Indiana governor explained that he is unapologetically pro-life and that he is dedicated to the cause.
“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace asked Pence about a bill he signed as governor that would prevent women from having an abortion because the fetus had abnormalities.
“I’m pro-life. I don’t apologize for it,” he started, adding that he’d like to see Roe v. Wade overturned.
Pence went on to compare abortions based on abnormalities of a child to those based on the race or gender of the child, calling them all “morally offensive.”
“We cherish those who have disabilities in the state of Indiana,” he explained. “Taking a step in the direction of protecting the unborn who are facing physical challenges and disabilities — I think that was the right thing to do.”
Although the matter has been taken to the courts to determine the constitutionality of this form of limitation on abortions, Pence said he stands by his pro-life stance no matter what.
“I believe in the sanctity of life, and I stand by that principle,” he said, adding that he was “grateful” to be standing with Trump on the defending the rights of those still in the womb.

Pence’s statements will likely ease some of the concerns of conservative voters who have not been entirely convinced that the GOP presidential candidate is a strong pro-life advocate.
The battle over the issue of life reflects on the battle for America’s soul and what kind of country we will be. We must elect leaders in November who respect and defend the right to life.
