The visit to South Carolina will mark the former vice president’s final stop in a series of speeches and events across the country. Last month, he visited New Hampshire’s first state presidential primary, where he attended a fundraiser for Republican candidates for the state Senate and met with local political activists.

South Carolina’s anti-abortion activist base has been of particular importance to former Republican candidates seeking to strengthen community ties.

The abortion debate plays a major role in the political sphere, as the conservative-leaning Supreme Court is expected to rule on Texas’ six-week abortion ban as well as Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which involves a Mississippi law that prohibits abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

In November, Pence gave a speech urging the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade a day before hearing the closing arguments in the Mississippi case.

In July, Pence said his organization, Advancing American Freedom, had filed an amicus brief also asking the High Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, the decision that established a constitutional right to abortion in the United States. The group also requested that Planned Parenthood v. Casey, who confirmed this right, be reversed.
