At a luncheon on Tuesday, Vice President Mike Pence told a group of Christian broadcasters that he believes the pro-life movement has gained momentum, Life Site reported.
“I truly do believe, if all of us do all that we can, we will once again in our time, restore the sanctity of life to the center of American Law," Pence said.
His proclamation came during a speech at the National Religious Broadcasters 75th Annual Convention in Nashville hosted by Susan B. Anthony List and the Life Issues Institute.
The vice president has been a vocal supporter of pro-life policies throughout his career.
What else did he say?
“I hope you all feel encouraged today because I know, I do. Having been in the cause all of my adult life, I see more progress in the last year in the cause of life than I have seen in public policy in all of my years.”
“And I truly do believe that life is winning in America for a variety of reasons,” Pence said. “Through the generosity of adoptive families that are opening their homes to children.”
He said he recognizes the compassion and commitment of those who fight to protect the sanctity of life.
“And life is winning through the compassion of caregivers and volunteers at crisis pregnancy centers and faith-based organizations,” Pence said.
The vice president said he's proud of the progress made but added there's still much work left to do.
“Let us not weary of doing good," he added, “I just know in my heart of hearts, that this will be the generation that restores life in America.”
“I urge you on, and I do so with confidence, with confidence that good news is around the corner in America,” Pence said. “I have boundless faith in the goodness and decency of the American people; I have boundless confidence in that President that you elected and the pro-life majorities in the Congress of the United States, and in states all across this country.”
Pence also quoted Psalm 139, “And I have boundless confidence in Him who said, 'Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.'”
“And with faith in all those leaders, faith in all of you, and faith in God. I know that, together with you, we will once again live in an America that chooses life," he added.
