During his speech to CPAC last night, pro-life vice president Mike Pence called for making permanent a ban on taxpayer funding of abortions. Pence also said repealing Obamacare is coming and that President Donald Trump is following through on pro-life promises he made during the election.

“Under his leadership, we are making America great again,” Pence told the crowd, adding that President Trump is “restoring the culture of life.”

“Because of President Donald Trump, life is winning in America again,” Pence added. “Last month he reinstated the Mexico City Policy and we will make the Hyde Amendment permanent.”

“President Trump is a man of his word, and we’re keeping the promises he made to the American people,” he added.

The vice president also talked about repealing Obamacare, which funds abortions.

“And after we repeal and replace Obamacare, we’re going to do a whole lot more,” he added.
