This International Women’s Day is a stark reminder that women’s rights are in danger as the Supreme Court looks poised to dismantle Roe v. Wade. 

Rights of Michigan women are among the most at risk in the nation. A currently dormant law from 1931 that remains on the books criminalizes abortion, makes felons out of reproductive health care providers, and provides no exceptions for rape or incest. Anti-choice advocates have touted the law as the most restrictive in the country, and would immediately go back into effect if Roe v. Wade gets overturned nationally.

Governors will be the last line of defense against drastic and dangerous abortion bans that would impact millions of Michigan women, yet the 12 Republicans fighting for the spot are standing against Michigan women and families as they push to take away the right to abortion:

  • Also a staunch supporter of the 1931 ban that remains on the books in Michigan, Tudor Dixon has plainly stated that she would was against all exceptions to abortion, even when the health of the mother was at risk. 

MDP spokesperson Rodericka Applewhaite issued the following statement:

“As far as the Republicans running in this crowded and messy gubernatorial primary are concerned, International Women’s Day is just another Tuesday. Johnson, Soldano, Craig, Rinke, and Dixon have been clear about their dangerous support for rolling back access to reproductive health care. Michiganders deserve a leader like Governor Whitmer, who is a champion for women and reproductive rights and stands against attempts to strip them.”
