SBA List Praises Mike Pence Defense of Unborn Babies with Disabilities

On Fox News Sunday this morning, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence said he wanted to see “Roe v. Wade overturned and consigned to the ash heap of history.” He also discussed Indiana legislation to protect babies from abortions for the purposes of disability. Gov. Pence said:

“We took a stand in the state of Indiana, that frankly many countries have taken, that abortions for the reasons of race or sex, are morally offensive, and we stand by that. But we also cherish those who have disabilities in the state of Indiana. And taking a step in the direction of protecting the unborn, who are facing physical challenges and disabilities, I think was the right thing to do.”

In response, Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser praised the Indiana Governor saying:

“Governor Pence aligns himself with the marginalized, those in need who many don’t notice, and he does not forget them. Children with disabilities waiting to be born in Indiana and everywhere are arguably the most vulnerable in our world. He wants to protect them and support their parents.”
