At a Republican roundtable that included Gov. Mike Pence and Republican National Chairman Rience Priebus this past week in Indianapolis, an older white male made this observation: "I am pro-life, but Roe v. Wade is the law of the land and we will never overturn it."
Our candidates should say, "I am pro-life, Roe v. Wade is the law of the land and I am going to work as hard as I can to make life better for our children."
That message will be ignored at the Indiana Statehouse. SB371 will likely be passed and Gov. Pence has said he will sign any pro-life legislation that crosses his desk. But it likely won't save any lives.
Once passed, it will be challenged by the American Civil Liberties Union. That group successfully brought a suit over the defunding of Planned Parenthood and that law was struck down by a federal court. Federal courts have struck down a similar law in Oklahoma and there's an injunction onÊa North Carolina law.
So the question I place before you today is this: At what point does government have a mandate to enter your body? It already does with inoculating shots before you enter school. It used to be able to draft you and send you to war.
Is the government overstepping its bounds when it comes to a female vagina?
