The thought of Donald Trump becoming president is scary for a lot of people for a lot of reasons. Now, his vice presidential nominee, Mike Pence, is giving women and anyone who supports women in this country all the more reason to not vote for Trump.

Maybe, but that would never stop abortion, merely move it underground. Prohibition didn't stop alcohol, but made it more glamorous.

I wonder how many Republicans are basically hypocrites. . .

Ban anything, and it instantly acquires credibility.

If Drumpf becomes president he'll throw Pence that bone, I'm sure.

In March 2016, Gov. Pence signed a measure prohibiting women from obtaining an abortion because of the race, gender, or disability of the fetus, making Indiana only the second state in the nation to do this. The law also held doctors legally liable for wrongful death if it was found they had performed an abortion motivated by one or more of the prohibited reasons. These sorts of bans are opposed by much of the medical community, out of fear that women will censor themselves when it comes to making difficult decisions with the help of their doctors. Following the Supreme Court's decision in a landmark abortion case in June, a federal judge blocked this Indiana law from going into effect.

He slashed Planned Parenthood funding, spurring clinic closures and an HIV outbreak: In 2011, Pence pushed an amendment through the House to defund Planned Parenthood. This amendment helped kick-start a wave of state actions aimed at removing government support from the women's health provider. Indiana was successful in its efforts, but a federal judge blocked the law from going into effect. When Pence became governor in 2013, Indiana continued to slash resources for the women's health provider. By 2014, state funding for Planned Parenthood had been cut nearly in half from 2005 levels. The organization was forced to close five of its smaller clinics, none of which had ever provided abortions, but they did provide STD testing. Soon, Scott County, Indiana, home to one of the closed clinics, became the hub of an enormous HIV outbreak.

On top of that, Trump has courted by meeting with evangelical leaders and promising to appoint anti-abortion Supreme Court justices.
