WATCH: Pence Is Asked Whether He Wants ‘Roe’ Overturned. He Doesn’t Mince Words.

Appearing on CNN with Dana Bash, Vice President Mike Pence didn’t blink when Bash asked him bluntly whether he wanted Roe v. Wade to be overturned. Pence answered simply, “I do.”

Bash started the segment by asking about Judge Brett Kavanaugh, whom President Trump nominated for the Supreme Court on Monday. She queried, “Are you worried that he’s not going to follow what you want to do?”

Pence answered, “Well, Dana, as you know, I’m pro-life; I don’t apologize for it, and I’m proud to be part of a pro-life administration that’s advanced pro-life policies. But what I can assure you is that what the president was looking for here was a nominee who will respect the Constitution as written, who will faithfully uphold the Constitution in all of his interpretations of the law.”

Bash pressed, “Do you still want Roe vs. Wade to be overturned?”

Pence pointed out, “I do, but I haven’t been nominated to the Supreme Court.”

Bash, determined to put some distance between Pence and the nominee, urged, “Right. But you’re part of an administration that campaigned, you and the president, saying you will find nominees to overturn Roe vs. Wade. Will you be disappointed if he is given that opportunity and he doesn’t? Will you be disappointed?”

Pence understood that the question was essentially irrelevant, replying, “Well, as I’ve said, I stand for the sanctity of life. This administration, this president, are pro-life. But what the American people ought to know is that, as the president said today, this is not an issue he discussed with Judge Kavanaugh; I didn’t discuss it with him either.”

      Actually, Vice President Pence was an outstanding Governor of Indiana, and someday will be an outstanding President of the USA.

    Dean, you are a lousy person youself. You give your opinion, but do not back it up with facts. Give me factcs! Abortion or not, it’s really about President Trump. People want to go against EVERYTHING Trump wants to do. To me, all these people are hypocrites. Last week, these same people wanted to “save the kids” and prevent them from being separated. NOW, this week, they want to KILL them. That’s sad! Even with Obama was president, I supported his decision, even though I didn’t agree with it. I prayed for him and hoped that a president will come to make America great again. I believe God has! If you were mature, you and the rest of the crybabies should do the same. Instead of crying that HRC loss the election, support the President and vote him out in another 2 years. That’s democracy.

    As for Roe v/s Wade, Pence seems to be a Man of God. He supports his values and sticks by them. He stated that SCOTUS nominee will make decisions based on the Constitution, not create or circumvent laws like many of the current members of the Supreme Court.

    Dean, if that is your true name, you should get a life, instead of trolling these sites. I am sure you get paid well to troll these sites, but if you have a soul, you are selling yourself to the wrong cause.
