Mike Pence Rallies in Michigan, Calls Trump 'Pro-Life'

In March, Pence signed a law banning abortions sought because of genetic defects



    Republican vice presidential candidate Gov. Mike Pence, R-Ind., addresses supporters during a campaign event in Novi, Mich., on July 28, 2016.

    Donald Trump's stand on abortion has been inconsistent, but his running mate says Trump would be a "pro-life president." 

    Mike Pence is campaigning in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and he makes clear he opposes abortion. And the Indiana governor told a town hall rally Thursday, "I don't apologize for it." 

    Pence drew the ire of abortion rights advocates in March after he signed a law banning abortions that were being sought because of fetal genetic defects. That law has since been blocked pending the outcome of a court challenge. 

    Pence says Trump would appoint conservatives to the Supreme Court who would send the Roe v. Wade abortion ruling to the "ash heap of history."

    Speaking at a rally in Ohio on Oct. 20, 2016, Donald Trump said that he would accept the presidential election results if they were in his favor. "I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all the people of the United Staes that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election -- if I win,” Donald Trump said, emphasizing the last three words by pointing into the crowd. The rally was held the day following the final debate, during which the issue of whether he would accept the election results came up. At the debate, he said he would have to wait and see what the results were. (Published Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016)
