Pence Pushing For Abortion Law

Gov. Mike Pence is one of a handful of possible White House contenders supporting a proposed federal ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Pence wrote a letter to South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham supporting the ban. Other possible 2016 contenders who wrote in support include former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. Pundits, say proposal is unlikely to go anywhere in the gridlocked Congress and is somewhat of a moot point for Indiana, where state lawmakers enacted the 20-week ban in 2011. But it is a key barometer for White House hopefuls looking to gain favor among religious conservatives.
