Mike Pence is continuing to act like a 2024 Presidential candidate. Yesterday, as reported by The State, he spoke at a fundraiser for a fringe right wing crisis pregnancy center in the early presidential primary state of South Carolina.
Pence continuously speaks at so-called “crisis pregnancy centers,” which are actually fake clinics that spread blatant disinformation to manipulate women into making medical decisions under false pretenses. According to CNN in 2020, Pence spoke at a center in North Carolina that falsely linked abortion to increased chance of breast cancer and spread other false information to patients seeking care.
Pence is spouting his far right and out of step views in an effort to become relevant again after falling out of favor with Donald Trump – and by extension the GOP. With the Supreme Court preparing to officially overturn Roe v. Wade, Pence and his far right allies are wildly out of step with Americans who by in large support legal abortion by a 70% margin.
