October 7, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Vice President Mike Pence and Democrat vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris squared off on abortion and the Supreme Court during Wednesday night’s 2020 vice presidential debate, culimating in Pence confronting Harris on her and running mate Joe Biden’s refusal to answer whether they would engage in court-packing should they win.

“President Trump and I could not be more enthusiastic” about Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Pence said, calling President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg a “brilliant woman.” 

“We hope she gets a fair hearing, and particularly hope we don't see the attacks on her Christian faith that we saw before,” Pence added, referencing how Senate Democrats attacked Barrett in 2017 for the way, as Sen. Dianne Feinstein put it, “the dogma lives loudly within you.”

Though he demurred on the subject of how Barrett might rule on Roe v. Wade, Pence added that he “couldn’t be more proud” to serve a pro-life administration, and slammed the Biden-Harris ticket’s support for effectively unlimited abortion at taxpayer expense.

Without addressing the specific comments Pence cited, Harris responded that “Joe Biden and I are both people of faith, and it’s insulting to suggest we would knock anyone for their faith.” She went so far as to claim that the ardently pro-abortion, pro-LGBT Biden would be the “second practicing Catholic” president in American history.

PETITION UPDATE (9/26/2020):

With President Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are closer than we have been in decades to seeing Roe vs. Wade overturned.

We now encourage the Senate to confirm Barrett as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.

Judge Barrett has a fantastic track recond on sanctity of life issues, has seven children, and is a devout believer. She is the perfect remedy for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's radical pro-abortionism.

And then, please SIGN this petition telling the High Court that it's now time to end the activist Roe vs. Wade judgment. Thank you!


PETITION UPDATE (6/29/2020):

In a decision which has imperiled more abortion-minded women, sentenced more preborn to death, and upset pro-lifers across the nation,the United States Supreme Court decided 5-4 to strike down a Louisiana law requiring basic medical precautions in the event of abortion complications, with Chief Justice John Roberts reversing his own past decision to uphold a similar Texas law.

Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion, which held that the Louisiana law was unconstitutional for the simple fact that it was “almost word-for-word identical” to the Texas one the court already struck down in 2016.

In his concurring opinion, Chief Justice Roberts acknowledged that he had “joined the dissent in Whole Woman’s Health and continue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today however is not whether Whole Woman’s Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.”

We call on the Supreme Court to stop supporting the culture of death and overturn Roe vs Wade, now.

PETITION UPDATE (1/20/2020):

Hundreds of thousands of people will gather in Washington, D.C., this coming Friday, January 24th, for the March for Life. They will be praying for an end to Roe vs Wade, as the Supreme Court will hear a crucial, abortion-related case later this year in March. United our voices can change the course of history. Sign this petition TODAY! (LEARN MORE BELOW)


In advance of the Supreme Court's hearing arguments in an important abortion case later this year in March, 207 U.S. Senators and Representatives have signed amicus briefs supporting a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby an abortion center.

Some of these supporting briefs also suggest that now is the time to reconsider Roe vs Wade as sound law.

Please SIGN this petition, calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Roe vs Wade.


More than 60 million Americans have been slaughtered in their mother's wombs as a result of Roe v. Wade. This activist, unconstitutional ruling in 1973 has left countless women emotionally and psychologically scarred. 

It was believed by many that Roe would be overturned in 1992 with Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Despite having eight Republican-appointed judges at the time, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold it. 

Since then, major gains have been made in the fight for life, and many lives have been saved. 

However, Roe v. Wade remains the law of the land, leaving millions of defenseless pre-born children vulnerable to murder.

According to a 2016 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35% of aborted babies are African American, despite black women only making up six percent of the U.S. population. 19% of aborted babies are Hispanic.

We thus again call on the court to do everything they can to end Roe vs Wade.

Now is the time for pro-lifers to join together and ensure that all of God's children have a right to life.

Roe v. Wade must come to an end!

Harris also called for waiting until after the election to decide whether Trump or Biden gets to fill the Supreme Court vacancy, but instead of elaborating on abortion she pivoted to the possibility that a more conservative Supreme Court might overturn the so-called Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

The most intense portion of the exchange, however, came when Pence brought up the threat of Democrats adding more seats to the nine-person court should they win, better known as court-packing. Biden refused to answer the question in his debate with Trump last week.

“I think the American people really deserve an answer, Senator Harris: are you and Joe Biden going to pack the court if Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed?” Pence asked.

Harris repeatedly changed the subject, leading Pence to conclude before the segment ended: “If you haven’t figured it out yet, the answer is they are going to pack the court.”
