Vice President Mike Pence suggested Thursday that abortion rights activists support “infanticide,” echoing false claims made last month by President Donald Trump about doctors killing babies that have already been born.
Speaking alongside Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during their talks Thursday in Canada, Pence said that while he appreciated the ability to speak candidly with Trudeau, he was “very proud to be part of a pro-life administration.”
Pence said he was troubled by what he called “the Democratic party in our country, and leaders around the country, supporting late-term abortion, even infanticide.”
