Since before she became a Republican candidate for governor, Tudor Dixon has regularly pushed conspiracy theories that demonstrate the scope of her wrong-for-Michigan agenda. This time, she’s been caught weaponizing her baseless lies against efforts to allow women and families to make their own reproductive decisions.
According to reporting from MIRS, Dixon argued in an interview 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.”
And when given the opportunity to offer any evidence to support these outlandish claims, Dixon reportedly declined to do so.
Dixon’s anti-choice extremism knows no bounds. A staunch supporter of the currently dormant 1931 near-total ban that criminalizes abortion, she has plainly stated that she would was against all exceptions to abortion, even when the life of the mother was at risk.
It could be days until that ban is back on the books in Michigan according to a draft opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court that spelled out the argument for overturning Roe v. Wade. This week, Dixon issued a lengthy statement applauding the potential ruling and doubling-down on her crusade to ban abortions and maintaining that pregnancy should be forced on women regardless of if it was the result of an “awful circumstance.”
MDP spokesperson Rodericka Applewhaite issued the following statement:
“Tudor Dixon’s ongoing departure from reality isn’t something to take lightly. Her callous, wrong-for-Michigan agenda would equal devastating impacts for women and families. Meanwhile, Governor Whitmer has used every tool in her disposal to preserve reproductive freedom.”
