The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Mike Pence calls on Supreme Court to overturn decision on abortion rights” – below is their description.

US abortion rights may soon be consigned to the “ash heap of history,” former vice president Mike Pence told activists Tuesday on the eve of a crucial Supreme Court hearing.

The top court is preparing to hear a case that may roll back 50 years of abortion rights.

“We are asking the court in no uncertain terms to make history,” former Vice President Mike Pence, who has been laying the groundwork for a presidential run in 2024, said during a speech in Washington. “We are asking the Supreme Court of the United States to overturn Roe v. Wade and restore the sanctity of life at the center of American law.”

The case before justices on Wednesday regards a Mississippi law that bans abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The Supreme Court has previously guaranteed a woman’s right to an abortion until the fetus is viable outside the womb.
