With the presidential race still close, Vice President Mike Pence is already in a bind.
The president, after all, campaigned on a promise to end abortion and end gun violence, but the Vice President has been accused of having flip-flopped his positions on the issue.
Vice President Pence has faced the criticism over his decision to sign a bill allowing for abortions in the first trimester.
The law, which was signed by President Donald Trump in May, was a first in the country and the most sweeping abortion restrictions in the history of the country.
As the president prepares to deliver his inaugural address on January 20, Pence has already been criticized for his past support for abortion rights.
After the House voted in March to overturn the law, Pence told reporters that he “really believes” that abortion should be legal in the third trimester of pregnancy.
“I don’t think the Supreme Court has ever held that,” he said.
Pence said he supported the bill “with all my heart,” and that he would sign the bill on Friday.
In the meantime, his wife, Karen, who is an abortion rights activist, said Pence has not changed his position.
“He has a great love for his country and a great devotion to the cause,” Karen Pence said in a statement released by the White House.
“There’s nothing he’s changed.
He believes that abortion is a human right and he will continue to defend that right.”
Pence has also faced criticism for his statements on the death penalty.
He recently said he opposed capital punishment in cases where the victim of the crime was the perpetrator.
And he has previously called for a repeal of the death penalties in the United States.
Pence also announced last month that he will not seek reelection in 2020, despite his high popularity among Democrats.
Pence’s most recent endorsement comes on the heels of a string of endorsements from celebrities and politicians.
Kanye West and Katy Perry have all endorsed Pence, and in March, he announced he would not seek re-election in 2020.
In August, Kanye West endorsed the Vice president in a tweet that read: “I want to say a massive thank you to @VPPence for all his hard work and leadership.
He has a tremendous job ahead.”
