A few years ago, discussing politics with right-wing folks, when they'd say that they wished that Obama would be impeached, I'd point out that they'd get Joe Biden as president. They usually admitted that wouldn't please them.

"Pence: Abortion will end in U.S. 'in our time'" | The Hill

Quote
Vice President Pence predicted Tuesday that legal abortion would end in the U.S. "in our time."

"I know in my heart of hearts this will be the generation that restores life in America," Pence said at a luncheon in Nashville, Tenn., hosted by the Susan B. Anthony List & Life Institute, an anti-abortion organization.

"If all of us do all we can, we can once again, in our time, restore the sanctity of life to the center of American law."

Pence has long championed anti-abortion policies, as a congressman, as the governor of Indiana and as vice president.

He told the crowd he has seen more progress in the Trump administration's first year in office than he has in his entire life.

Since President Trump took office last year, he has signed legislation reversing an Obama-era rule that blocked states from defunding Planned Parenthood and reinstated a ban on federal funds for global health programs that cover or promote abortions.

Abortion has already been illegal in America "in our time".   It wasn't pretty.

Pence may well be more dangerous than Trump.

Undoubtedly. He's an agenda driven theist and smarter than Trump (ok that's not difficult).

I agree. Pence is very creepy.

Argh, Pence is in Brazil. Take him back, please.
