The vice president said his 25-year relationship with the SBA List has been "one of the most meaningful of my life" and called President Donald Trump the "most pro-life president in American history". He then made a stunning suggestion: that legal abortion could "once again" be banned in the USA, and that it could happen "in our time". He also drew attention to his tie-breaking vote in the U.S. Senate to pass a legislation that withholds federal funds from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.

John Sellek, a consultant acting as a spokesperson for Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, said Schuette plans to attend an America First Policies tax reform event featuring Pence on Friday. "And life is winning through the compassion of caregivers and volunteers at crisis pregnancy centers and faith-based organizations" who offer support, love and encouragement to young pregnant women in crisis. "But we have to do the work".

"Life is winning in America once again", he added.

Closing his address, Pence challenged attendees to "continue to speak about the cause of life on every platform that you have an opportunity to address". Pence will be joined by Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson to deliver remarks at the Susan B. Anthony List & Life Issues Institute around 12:30 p.m. Pence will also be speaking at the National Religious Broadcasters' Proclaim 18 Convention at Gaylord Opryland around 2 or 2:30 p.m.

"Good news is around the corner in America".

Anthony List & Life Institute Luncheon, he encouraged the forerunners of the pro-life movement, saying he thinks "life is winning" through programs like adoption, and the hard work of grassroots groups on the front lines of the culture war.

In this speech, after Pence said he believed abortion would be "on its way out" in our lifetime, he also unfortunately reminded us that he is the VP of America. "It's the kind of man who slays the Planned Parenthood dragon before it's cool, before anyone was talking about it".

Pence said he was "honored" to lend his name to the cause. "He has not backed down, he has with energy and wisdom and eloquence and integrity made his voice heard on behalf of the defenseless child and the vulnerable mother who needs him".
