Vice presidential candidates Mike Pence and Tim Kaine both boast a strong Christian faith and both oppose abortion as part of their faith, but Republican Pence said in Tuesday's debate Democrat Kaine has put his personal beliefs aside to follow presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's desire for partial-birth abortion and for taxpayer-funded abortion.
"My faith informs my life," Pence said. "I try spend time on my knees every day. But all for me, it begins with cherishing the dignity, the worth, the value of every human life."
Kaine said he and Clinton support Roe vs. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal in all 50 states. Kaine said Trump and Pence want to see the ruling overturned and have women face criminal charges for having an abortion.
Pence denied that, saying, "There is a choice here. It is a choice in life. I couldn't be more proud to be standing with Donald Trump."
