Abortion activists responded quickly to Trump's nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Monday night, pushing the false narrative that if confirmed, the Catholic jurist would criminalize abortion.
During the 2016 campaign, Trump pledged to consider only Supreme Court nominees who were against abortion rights, while Pence has said that he longs for the day when Roe v. Wade "is sent to the ash heap of history".
"Well, Dana, as you know, I'm pro-life; I don't apologize for it, and I'm proud to be part of a pro-life administration that's advanced pro-life policies", Pence said. "But what I can assure you is that what the president was looking for here was a nominee who will respect the Constitution as written, who will faithfully uphold the Constitution and all of his interpretations of the law".
Nonetheless, groups like the ACLU of Alaska have demanded Kavanaugh go on the record with his position on Roe v. Wade before his confirmation vote. "This administration, this President, are pro-life".

China says "fully prepared" if trade war kicks off this week
In theory, some European companies could benefit, jumping into market niches if Chinese businesses are kept out of the USA market. But eventually those costs will take their toll on the average wallet, and it likely won't be simply because of these tariffs.
"But what the American people ought to know is that, as the President said today, this was not an issue that he discussed with Judge Kavanaugh".
"Judge Brett Kavanaugh is quite simply the most qualified and the most deserving nominee", said Pence.
Even so, Trump and those advising him throughout the process of choosing a Supreme Court nominee have maintained that the president has refrained from raising the issue with any of his potential court picks. "Frankly, we've seen enough of litmus tests over the decades". Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) saying that Trump had nominated "someone who will not protect a woman's right to make decisions about her life, her healthcare, her reproductive freedom".
"What we don't want is to have people go to the courts with a specific objective or policy criteria".
