Across the country, pro-life voters have a decision to make this election. Do they trust Donald Trump enough on pro-life issues to vote for him over notorious abortion activist Hillary Clinton. In a new interview, pro-life Trump running mate Mike Pence says pro-life voters can be assured Trump is pro-life.

Moreover, the Indiana governor says pro-life voters can count on Trump to satisfy their concerns over the number one abortion-related issue this election — the future of the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade and abortion itself.

Here’s the relevant portion of Pence’s interview with PBS:

SIGN THE PLEDGE: I Pledge to Vote for a Pro-Life Candidate for President

GOV. MIKE PENCE: Well, I think Donald Trump is pro-life.

And I believe in the sanctity of life, and we have had some heart-to-heart conversations about the Supreme Court of the United States and about the importance of making sure that our next president appoints justices to the Supreme Court who will not only uphold the rule of law, but will — that will advance the principles enshrined in the Constitution of the United States.

I’m grateful for Donald Trump’s pro-life views. And I’m grateful that he’s expressed those views so publicly and openly. And, look, the American people know that there are issues that divide us very quickly, and they’re issues that are often matters of the heart for every American.

But the challenges facing our country today, I think, have even more even to do with America’s place in the world, with a struggling economy that isn’t producing the jobs that Americans long to see, with the kind of economic policies that seem to have other countries winning and America losing.

Donald Trump is speaking about those issues, Judy, and I think that’s why not only do you see tremendous unity in the Republican Party, but you see a lot of independents and a lot of Democrats that are being drawn to this movement. And I’m excited about the chance to continue to carry that message across the country.
