On Monday, Vice President Mike Pence responded to the Supreme Court’s narrow decision to uphold abortion rights in Louisiana, calling the decision “disappointing” and urging voters to give President Donald Trump another term who can appoint more right-wing Supreme Court justices.
After today’s disappointing decision by SCOTUS, one thing is clear: We need more Conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme Court. #FourMoreYears

Pence’s comment quickly invited contempt and mockery from commenters on social media.
Imagine being so staunchly anti-choice that you're willing to get in bed with mobsters like Trump & Putin, and then botch the pandemic response so that many more Americans die.
How is any of that "pro-life," exactly? https://t.co/NSJ3SGFurq

Not going to happen. You and Trump are both done after this term and have done so much damage to the country and GOP that it will be 30 years before we have another GOP president, senate or house. Good job dude. 130K dead, infection rates breaking records daily, 40m unemp

Unreal. The Supreme Court already favors conservatives. Where is a fair and just system if it's loaded with only conservative justices?
Republicans only know how to cheat. Two words: Merrick Garland

You only care about the unborn – not people’s lives
– taking away healthcare
– taking away SNAP benefits
– putting bounties on soldiers
– zero leadership on COVID-19
– 130,000 dead Americans
*** not one of these lives have mattered to you ***. YOU ARE NOT PRO LIFE!!!
