Mike Pence Had a Meeting With Anti-Choice Activists He Doesn’t Want You to Know About

The vice president's Twitter account posted a photo of his meeting with activists determined to destroy reproductive health care, but no one will discuss details of the meeting.

Pence hasn’t been shy about his ire for reproductive rights, vowing during the campaign to “send Roe v. Wade to the ash heap of history, where it belongs.”

The White House won’t answer questions about a meeting last week between Vice President Mike Pence and anti-choice advocates, even though some of the advocates are clearly identifiable in a photo posted from the vice president’s official Twitter account.

Pence and the advocates reaffirmed President Trump’s “commitment to the sanctity of life” amid plans to strip at least 22 million people of health care and discount reproductive health care entirely, according to the tweet.

Neither Pence’s daily schedule nor White House pool reports from reporters on duty at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue disclosed the sit-down—meaning that, in all likelihood, it would have gone unreported without a signal boost from the vice president’s office.

Pence spokesperson Mark Lotter refused to supply further details.

The photo clearly identifies Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List President Marjorie Dannenfelser and Concerned Women for America CEO and President Penny Nance, who posted a separate close-up to her Instagram account. A third attendee, March for Life President Jeanne Mancini, retweeted Pence.

“We met with the Vice President to talk with him about our pro-life priorities for the healthcare bill,” Mancini told Rewire in an emailed statement.

1. Ok...please excuse my vent for a moment..and my profanity..a couple things

Fuck this dude and his pious attempt to take away the mandated rights of women in this country. I'll gladly fight for the right of any group to have their voices heard up until the point that they advocate infringing on the rights of others, purely because of their beliefs!!! These fuckers can't understand that abortion happens whether it's "legal" or not, Row v Wade was about ensuring safe abortions and the rights of women to have access to that procedure!! We aren't a theocracy so this type of pomp and circumstance from Pence is all about soothing the base and ensuring votes in the future. Try as his evangelical heart might, Row v Wade is still law and the vast majority of Americans will fight for it!

Secondly, fuck this dude for his "military display" of challenge coins and the folded flag on display on his office! Fuck him for trying to appear like he's a fucking veteran that earned those coins. Challenge coins are given as a symbol of respect and shared sacrifice...this dude has them as a highlight in his office to "show his dedication" to the armed services. No, not just no but fuck no....I have a similar flag in my office...that flag hung in the Afghanistan heat and bore witness to the struggles in our OR as we fought and sweated and cried over our patients, American or not. My challenge coins were given freely because of the respect that individuals had to give them to me, not because of my position.

So fuck you, Mike Pence! Fuck you for trying to appear as a friend to the military, despite the fact your son is serving, Fuck you for displaying a flag in that way, as if you've ever sacrificed anything, and FUCK FUCK you for trying to impose your backwards, ignorant religious beliefs on women across this country! Fuck you...and I hope to hell your "Santa claus"..I'm a good dude...ass gets brought down with the entire Trump cabal!!

4. IMO the Anti-Abortion movement is fused at the hip to the same reactionaries

eager to dismantle the ACA and end Medicaid. They have no right whatsoever to be considered "pro-life," and any of that crowd that says otherwise is lying through their tooth or is a knowing, consenting, dupe whose word doesn't deserve to be taken seriously.

6. Another fun fact

Anti-abortion activists occasionally claim that they're actually "non-partisan," (You'd have to be a Rube of colossal dimensions to believe that one), but you seldom, if ever, see them campaigning for Democrats or for legislation that truly benefits expectant or nursing mothers or "post-born" babies.
