Access to Abortion is Under Immediate Threat in Michigan. Tudor Dixon Wants to See it Banned.￼
A Michigan Court of Appeals ruling made clear again this week that access to abortion is under immediate threat in Michigan. The state could revert overnight to a dangerous 1931 ban that makes no exceptions for rape or incest and would throw doctors and nurses in jail for caring for patients.
Thanks to Governor Whitmer’s rapid defense to protect abortion access, this ruling is temporarily blocked, keeping the 1931 ban from going into effect.
Governor Whitmer’s swift action stands in contrast to Dixon’s dangerous, anti-choice campaign and her repeated support for the 1931 ban, calling it “a good law.” Recently, she reiterated her intent to “enforce” and “abide by the law.”
U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Dixon issued a lengthy statement applauding the outcome and further reinforcing her crusade to ban abortions. She also maintained that pregnancy should be forced on women regardless of if it was the result of an “awful circumstance.”
Dixon faced considerable scrutiny in Michigan and nationwide for saying that incest and rape resulting in the pregnancy of a child was a “perfect example” of why she supports banning abortion. When given the opportunity to clarify, she doubled down on her callous statement saying, “I’m not hiding from it.”
Previously, Dixon got caught claiming that Planned Parenthood has employed a “business model” to “introduce sex” to “7th graders” so they can profit off of “plenty of abortions in high school.” Much like the other unhinged conspiracy theories she’s spewed all cycle, Dixon once again failed to offer any evidence backing it up.
