To all the Progressives out there reacting in abject horror to what Vice President Mike Pence said in this interview when asked if he'd like to see Roe vs Wade overturned & abortion sent back to the states to legislate? Seen a poll lately?

Roe v Wade essentially took the abortion issue out of the hands of all 50 states and federalized it, making abortion on demand for any reason until birth the de facto law of the land in 1973.
Voters in the states have attempted to impose limits on unfettered abortion on demand ever since. Back in 2013 we had just one such fight right here in Texas over lowering the state's abortion limit from 26 weeks to 20 weeks.

26 weeks is SIX AND A HALF MONTHS into the pregnancy.

Pro abortion forces gathered in Texas and fought tooth and nail for MONTHS to attempt to keep the legal limit for abortion in Texas at 6 1/2 months into a pregnancy.

And they FAILED.
You can thank Kermit Gosnell for that. I blogged about it at the time when I was writing for Breitbart.

The same people screaming at Mike Pence right now were the SAME people who screamed at Texas in 2013 when the voters supported a governor & a state legislature that dropped the legal abortion limit from 6 1/2 months to 5 months.
Progressives will NEVER EVER admit the pro life position has any validity whatsoever. They operate from a premise that Roe v Wade established abortion on demand in the U.S. for all time, any restrictions are the work of fascists & misogynists.
With the help of their comrades in DNC Media, Progressives have for decades painted the pro life movement as a 'fringe' 'extremist' group.

Since when are extremist fringe groups 1/2 of the country? 🤔
The position of many Progressives - which is that abortion should be allowed into the 3rd trimester, which is what HILLARY CLINTON'S position is - is FAR outside the mainstream and every goddamn poll demonstrates this.
Those numbers haven't changed much in 22 years, from 1996 to 2018.

Because the FACTS about human life and what an abortion kills haven't changed, no matter how many times pro abortion people scream a fetus isn't a human being.
The REALITY is, the people who scream for abortion to be legal past the 5th month of pregnancy are the extremists, and they put an INCREDIBLE amount of energy and PR work and outright flimflammery into hiding this from the general public.
And kudos to Mike Pence, who realizes this and isn't afraid to state what is in fact the position of MANY people in this country: that Roe v Wade was an incredibly bad law & it should never have federalized the issue & it needs to be overturned.
Roe v. Wade took the abortion issue away from the states, which means it took the issue away from the VOTERS ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES.

We're not a nation where we're supposed to have laws our reps voted on tossed out so we can be ruled by people sitting on a bench in robes.
Roe vs. Wade, a raw exercise of judicial power in striking down laws in 50 states to enact a practice it wanted legalized nationwide with no limits, has always been the crown jewel of Progressivism. It's the one clear example of a robust judicial activism that 'worked'.
The voters in many of the states have spent the decades since 1973 slowly reasserting their voice on this issue, with many of their efforts to turn back unlimited abortion on demand being passed up for judicial review, some passing muster, some being overturned.
But don't you buy for a minute the 100% fake Lefty hysteria that a small fringe extremist group is now about to 'illegally' overturn Roe v Wade.

THEY are the small, fringe extremists, as every poll shows people want restrictions on this practice. And that's not just in the US.
The hip, modern sophisticated Europeans? Ever check what THEIR limitations on abortion are?

Because a lot of people would be surprised if they did.

[Note: Ireland has since changed it's law]
Even debauched SWEDEN, with it's famous sex industry and red light district has an abortion limit of 'only' 18 weeks into a pregnancy: 4 1/2 months.

U.S. states fought hard to reassert sanity on the abortion issue after the 1973 Roe v Wade disaster.
So as you watch the Progressive kabuki theater of Liberals getting the vapors and falling dramatically onto their fainting couches because MIKE PENCE DARED TO ACTUALLY SAY THAT IN A TELEVISED INTERVIEW ON CNN?

Don't fall for it.

Laugh at them.
