Dixon’s Greatest Hits, Debate Edition: Tudor Dixon Called the Extreme 1931 Near-Total Abortion Ban “A Good Law”

Tudor Dixon is a staunch anti-abortion extremist who will stop at nothing to see reproductive rights eliminated for millions of Michigan women and families, even in cases of rape, incest, or health of the mother – up to imposing excessively cruel outcomes on child victims of sexual assault.

It is an extensively-documented fact that Dixon unequivocally supports a dangerous abortion ban from 1931 that criminalizes abortion, makes felons out of reproductive health care providers and provides no exceptions for rape or incest. She’s also said that child sexual assualt victims should not have access to abortion because there’s “healing through that baby.” 

Before the U.S. Supreme Court officially stripped federal abortion protections, Dixon welcomed the then-potential of Roe v. Wade being overturned as “such a unique opportunity for all of us running to talk about life in a different way” before arguing the decision would “[give] women that knowledge of what it is to be a mama.”

Despite knowing her stance is completely out of touch with millions of Michigan women and families, Dixon has called the ballot proposal that would codify Roe in Michigan’s constitution “extreme.” 

WATCH the clip of Dixon – who has been endorsed by  special interest groups Susan B. Anthony List, Michigan Right to Life, and National Right to Life – calling the near total ban “a good law” and read the transcript below:

TUDOR DIXON: I am a pro-life candidate. Life is very important to me. The law that we have now is a good law. We need to protect life in this state. It is very important to me that we are honest with young women about the joy of motherhood, that we are supportive of young women who are having a family and have the opportunity to experience the joy of having a baby.
