Former Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday that he supports a draft Supreme Court ruling in Rowe v. Wade that has surfaced online and that he is praying for it to happen.
“We have a [sic] a historic opportunity to restore the sanctity of life at the heart of American law, and I welcome that. And I hope, and I pray, that the United States Supreme Court will pass the draft conclusion and become part of the country’s law, “he said.
Pence made such remarks when he visited an ultrasound clinic owned by the Carolina Pregnancy Center in Spartanberg, South Carolina, where he was to pre-speak at the organization’s fundraiser, Fox Carolina reports.
At the ceremony, his speech covered the news of Monday’s escape and called on those present to pray and encourage the five Supreme Court judges who made the conclusion to comply.
Partial footage of the speech was posted on Twitter by pro-life organization Susan B. Anthony List:

“We must remain steadfast,” he said. “The decision is not final. So I want to encourage you to keep praying. ”
He also attacked the leak itself, which he said was “intended to undermine integrity. [the court’s] operations ”.
“It won’t work,” he continued. “Whatever happens in the coming weeks, the left, which advocates abortion, will not succeed. The United States Supreme Court will not be intimidated, and we will never stop fighting for the sanctity of life.”
There is currently no evidence to point to the political affiliations of the person who nominated the project, as Brian Metzger of Insider reported. Several Republicans, such as Texas Gov. Ted Cruz, have argued that the Liberals betrayed him to increase public pressure on him. Senator Kevin Kramer of Dakota told the Insider that he briefly suggested that the Conservative operative had done it to “get it over with”.
At the gala, Pence also asked attendees to pray for the “safety” of judges, citing calls from some pro-election organizations to encourage activists to protest near judges’ homes, according to NBC Montana.
The Carolina Pregnancy Center website says it is an organization that provides advice and support on abortion, adoption and parenting, and is described in the Baptist Courier as “service for life”.
In footage taken by Fox Carolina, Pence was greeted near the site by pro-choice protesters with placards reading “abortion is health care” and “my body is my choice.”
