Why Mike Pence’s Nomination Is TERRIBLE For Women

Trump’s running mate instituted some of the most restrictive reproductive rights laws in the country. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“When Indiana Governor Mike Pence passed one of the nation’s most restrictive anti-abortion bills, Hoosier ladies trolled him by calling him up and talking about women’s health and Auntie Flo.

Indiana Governor Mike Pence could be the next vice president of the United States, if he edges out the other names on Donald Trump’s rapidly-shrinking VP shortlist—but he’s probably not the guy to solve Trump’s “women problem.” That’s because Pence has supported, sponsored, and signed some of the country’s most extreme anti-abortion legislation in the past decade.

In March, Pence signed a bill that, among other restrictions, bans abortion sought because of a fetal anomaly like Down syndrome and requires abortion providers to bury or cremate fetal tissue.
