Former Vice President Mike Pence called for a national abortion ban following Friday’s 6-3 Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 constitutional right to abortion.

“Now that Roe v. Wade has been relegated to the ash heap of history, a new arena in the cause of life has emerged, and it is the duty of all who cherish the sanctity of life to decide that we must defend the the unborn and the support for women in crisis maternity centers to every state in America,” Pence said Breitbart News

Beginning June 24, the decision to immediately ban or restrict abortion procedures will be made by state lawmakers. Outspoken in his pro-life views, Pence wants to further tighten abortion restrictions, such as in California, where lawmakers have pledged to provide a haven for those seeking abortions.

“Now that we have been given this second chance at life, we must not rest or give in until the sanctity of life is restored to every state in the country at the center of American law,” Pence said.

Following the Supreme Court decision, Pence released a three-minute video through his organization, Advancing American Freedom, praising the vote and highlighting his journey to fight abortion since he was elected to Congress in 2001.

Pence, who proposed the first bill in 2007 to fund Planned Parenthood during his time in Congress, has recently spent time visiting states with crisis maternity centers. The former vice president has been spotted at the Carolina Pregnancy Center’s annual gala.

The Roe v. Wade milestone has allowed abortions up to the first two trimesters of pregnancy for 50 years.

There are 13 states that want to immediately ban abortion: Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.

Meanwhile, states on the West Coast, namely California, Oregon and Washington, are trying to create a roadmap referred to as the “West Coast Offensive,” which would provide continuous access to abortions for state and state residents.
