    To Protect Abortion in November:




    ✓ Support

    Gretchen Whitmer (D), Incumbent

    The Michigan governor’s race is critical to whether abortion remains legal in the state. Re-electing Gov. Whitmer will help to protect Michiganders’ reproductive rights.

    For three and a half years, the threat of my veto is what has kept Michigan pro-choice.

    Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, 7/6/2022

    • The governor’s veto is the only backstop against the state putting in place a new, total abortion ban: Gov. Whitmer is the last one standing between reproductive rights and the state legislature’s politicians who are hellbent on outlawing abortion.
    • A draconian 1931 abortion ban that would throw Michiganders in jail for their health care decisions was poised to go back into effect this summer; thankfully, Gov. Whitmer helped to save Michiganders with a lawsuit that has blocked prosecutors from enforcing the 91-year-old law.
    • Gov. Whitmer signed an executive order refusing to extradite people who come to Michigan to obtain abortion care from states that have banned it.


    𝗑 OPPOSE

    Tudor Dixon (R), Challenger

    Dixon celebrated the U.S. Supreme Court decision to end the federal constitutional right to abortion — and she would support banning abortion in Michigan with no exceptions.

    I am a pro-life candidate – no exceptions.

    Tudor Dixon, 9/29/21


    • A fringe, inflammatory, right-wing media personality endorsed by former President Donald Trump, Dixon cheered the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wadecalling it “a day for celebration.”
    • Dixon would extend the suffering of child rape survivors: If they become pregnant, she’d force the children to give birth in all cases except when a doctor proves they’ll die without an abortion — and she says having the baby would be “healing” for the rape survivors.
    • If elected governor, Dixon would work to enforce Michigan’s 1931 abortion ban, which criminalizes abortion with no exceptions for rape, incest, or the health of the patient.
