Whitmer offers support for zero abortion restrictions in debate

Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer declined to support abortion restrictions during her debate against Republican opponent Tudor Dixon on Thursday.

The debate opened with a question on abortion, with both candidates being asked to propose restrictions or exceptions on the issue of abortion. Although the moderator repeatedly asked her if she had any restrictions on abortion, Whitmer asked the question and gave no answer.

Whitmer said in his initial statement:

When the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade, it took away the rights we had had for 49 years. The rights I have had all my life have now been taken away from the women and girls of this country. Michigan could revert to a 1931 law that makes it a felony, with no exceptions for rape or incest, criminalizing doctors and nurses.

The moderator pressed and pressed Whitmer to name all the restrictions and she gave none.

Whitmer supports Proposition 3 in Michigan, which will essentially liberalize abortion in the state if it passes, eliminating the right of parents to deny their underage daughters an abortion while sanctioning the practice until birth. As the Michigan Republican Party stated in an email to Breitbart News:

Whitmer has repeatedly said she would “fight like hell” to protect abortion – rhetoric that has been described as “insurgency talk” by congressional Democrats.

Gretchen Whitmer refused to condemn the violence pro-abortion extremists.

A pro-life pregnancy resource center at Southfield was attacked. An 86-year-old pro-life campaign volunteer was shot in the back after a disagreement over abortion.

A recent CBS News/YouGov poll showed Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer has a six-point lead over Republican challenger Tudor Dixon — 53% to 47%. A Detroit News a poll in early September showed Whitmer ahead of Dixon by 13 points.
