There have been two topics of Mike Pence for president stories in recent weeks. The first has been about Pence taking his nascent campaign to Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, preparing for an upstart 2024 campaign. The second focuses on the many articles saying he has little to no chance, particularly if former president Donald Trump runs.

And now comes the Mississippi abortion case that was heard Wednesday morning by the U.S. Supreme Court, described as the most direct challenge to Roe v. Wade since the Casey case three decades ago. According to the AP, the Supreme Court had never agreed to hear a case over an abortion ban so early in pregnancy until all three Trump appointees – Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett – were on board.

Governor Tony Evers of Wisconsin just vetoed a bill that would require that aborted babies born alive be given medical care. He is a monster. You people have brought this on yourselves by taking the Abortion industry to a whole new level of cruelty. You have no shame. Thank you Mr Pence, you are on the right side of history here.
