Pence suggests Roe v. Wade could be overturned by Supreme Court

Over the weekend, former Vice President Mike Pence said the U.S. Supreme Court could soon make one of the biggest decision reversals in American history.

Specifically, the former vice president suggested that the landmark 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade may soon be on the way out. 

According to Fox News, his prediction came on Saturday afternoon as Pence spoke to attendees in Washington, D.C. at the National Pro-life Summit.

State battles coming

“Your generation must lead and fight for life in every state across this land,” he told those in attendance, many of whom were students and young activists.

“With a real prospect of a post-Roe America before us, I urge you to prepare your minds for action,” Pence continued, adding, “Pray that the conservatives on our Supreme Court will have the courage of their convictions.”

“The pro-life generation has never been stronger,” he went on to insist. “And, thanks to all of you, life is winning in America again.”

Pence added: “And never doubt the American people are on our side. I believe the majority of the highest court in the land is on our side as well.”

The former VP said: “We are asking the court in no uncertain terms to make history. We are asking the Supreme Court of the United States to overturn Roe v. Wade and restore the sanctity of life to the center of American law.”

Interesting polls

Pence noted that should the Court move to overturn Roe along with Planned Parenthood v. Casey, then the issue of abortion will be addressed by state legislatures. There is conflicting polling data regarding how Americans want the Supreme Court to handle abortion.

A Fox News survey conducted in mid-January found that 31% would like to see Roe overturned, whereas 63% express support for allowing the case to stand.

Yet as National Review writer John McCormack recently noted, another poll conducted this month by Marist found that 71% of Americans support a number of abortion restrictions that the holding in Casey does not permit.

Only time will tell how the high court rules, but it’ll be especially fascinating given the conservative majority of justices.
