Well, what can one expect from the guy who waged war against a Disney movie?
In your wtf?! news of the day, vice presidential nominee Mike Pence just revealed his intentions to overturn the historic Roe Vs. Wade case. It’s just one of the latest unconstitutional ideas the walking garbage dumpster has put forth in his plan to dial America forty decades back in time.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Roe Vs. Wade verdict, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled abortion constitutional in 1973 thanks to the constitution’s 14th amendment, a provision designed to protect the privacy of U.S. citizens. The case was inspired by a woman in Texas who failed to receive an abortion because the conception wasn’t a result of rape or incest.
Speaking on his detrimental views (47,000 women a YEAR die from unsafe abortions), Mike stated:
“I’m pro-life and I don’t apologize for it. We’ll see Roe vs. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs. 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. 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.”
Hmm, what an interesting view to take considering the Republican party doesn’t support Planned Parenthood, an organization which helps to prevent abortions by providing people with the tools to practice safe sex!
Not to mention, a lot of republicans cite the constitution when arguing against gun control. So, it’s only fitting for M.P. to argue against abortion when the constitution literally supports this course of action if a woman so chooses.
Common sense’s response to this mess:
Considering the nation is in the midst of 2016, one would think this case would remain where it belongs — in the PAST. Unfortunately, Mr. Pence has made it clear he doesn’t respect women’s rights similarly to his pal and running mate Donald Trump.
All we can say is, this is one of the most important elections in our history EVER. Make sure you exercise your right to vote, people!
