Mike Pence Told Justin Trudeau That Democrats Support ‘Infanticide’

While speaking alongside Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Ottawa on Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence said that the Democratic Party supported late-term abortion and “infanticide.”

Pence told Trudeau that, among other things, that he was bothered by the Democrats “in our country, and leaders around the country, supporting late-term abortion, even infanticide.”

“But those are debates within the U.S., and I know that Canada will deal with those issues in a manner the people of Canada determine most appropriate,” he continued. “For President Trump, for me, for our administration, we’ll always stand for the right to life.”

Pence’s comments come as GOP-led state legislatures throughout the U.S. pass measures designed to restrict access to abortions, and after Trump claimed at a rally in Wisconsin last month that the Democratic Party was “aggressively pushing extreme late-term abortion, allowing children to be ripped from their mother’s womb.”

According to Bloomberg News, Trudeau confronted Pence over America’s “backsliding” on women’s rights, telling the U.S. vice president that Canadians have concerns about the “anti-choice laws” its state lawmakers have passed.

“It was a cordial conversation, but it is one on which we have very different perspectives,” Trudeau said.

Trudeau has repeatedly spoken out against restrictive abortion policies. After Alabama’s governor signed a law that bans nearly all abortions, the prime minister said he was “deeply disappointed.”

“It’s a shame that we increasingly see conservative governments and conservative politicians taking away rights that have been hard-fought over many, many years by generations of women and male allies,” Trudeau said.
