Associated Press

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Former Vice President Mike Pence says he expects to call out former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis during this month’s Republican presidential debate for not insisting on a national abortion ban. Pence says the issue requires federal action even though the U.S. Supreme Court has returned the question to the states. He spoke to reporters while touring the Iowa State Fair on Friday. Pence has recommended federal legislation that would ban abortion nationwide at 15 weeks of pregnancy. Trump has not said whether he plans to attend the August 23 debate in Milwaukee.
