Pence Made Clear He Doesn’t Trust Women, And Women Can’t Trust Mike Pence and Donald Trump

Washington, DC –– In tonight’s vice-presidential debate, Governor Mike Pence underscored his lifelong commitment to criminalize abortion in this country, while failing over and over again to defend Donald Trump’s sexist, racist, and hateful campaign.


Quote from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:


“Mike Pence had one job tonight: defend Donald Trump. He couldn’t do it because Donald Trump — and his sexism, his racism, his xenophobia, and his hate — is simply indefensible. It’s clear Mike Pence and Donald Trump don’t trust women, and that’s why women can’t trust them. Mike Pence failed tonight, and he and Trump will fail on Election Day because America is better than their bigotry.”
