Indiana Governor Mike Pence has wasted no time performing his duties as Donald Trump’s lap dog by traveling the country giving stump speeches. On Thursday July 28, Pence made a stop in Grand Rapids, Michigan where he vowed like the scoundrel he is to restrict the rights of women across America by making abortion illegal again.
During his town hall speech the GOP vice presidential nominee Pence bellowed,
“I’m pro-life and I don’t apologize for it. We’ll see Roe v. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs.”
The crowd gave Pence affirmation they agreed with his statements and approved with his vision of women in America being barefoot in the kitchen while not being allowed to make decisions about their own bodies. While Pence says he is against government overreach, he has no qualms issuing edicts that are completely contradictory. What Pence and Trump really mean is they are against government interfering with their nefarious plans, but have no problem with government interceding in the most intimate details of everyone else.
Pence went on to describe why the next president will be so influential in shaping America’s legal landscape for the next generation, “While we’re choosing a president for the next four years, this next president will make decisions that will impact our Supreme Court for the next 40.” Pence continued, “Go tell your neighbors and your friends for the sake of the rule of law, for the sake of sanctity of life, for the sake of our 2nd Amendment, for the sake of all our other God-given liberties, we must insure the next president appointing justices to the Supreme Court is Donald Trump.”
Trump has previously stated he was in favor of a “penalty” for women who have an abortion, but he did not elaborate as to what the penalty would entail.
The ramifications Trump being sworn in as the 45th President of The United States are ghastly. When Pence says Trump is going to “make America great again” he means returning to the good ole days of dark alleys and bloody coat hangers. A Trump presidency will ensure the freedoms of women in America to be restricted. Rather than having the ability to visit a doctor to make decisions about their own body, women will be consigned to throwing themselves down flights of stairs, inserting knitting needles into their uteruses, ingesting poison, or asking someone to repeatedly punch and kick them in their abdomens to terminate a pregnancy. This is the reality we are facing, and there is only one path to take. Donald Trump must be stopped at all costs.
