The Record is Clear. Tudor Dixon Wants to Ban Abortion with No Exceptions for Rape, Incest, or Health of the Mother. 

As she struggles to explain her dangerous, out-of-step plan to ban abortion without exceptions, Tudor Dixon tried to blame “context” for her callous statement that incest and rape resulting in the pregnancy of a child was a “perfect example” of why she supports banning abortion. 

Dixon’s record is clear – see the full context of her anti-choice extremism below: 

  • In an extended clip provided by Charlie LeDuff’s No BS Newshour, Dixon can clearly be heard using the callous characterization of the horrific hypothetical multiple times before stating that abortion bans help sex predators.  
  • When asked about exceptions for rape, incest, or health of the mother, Dixon repeated three times she supported “no exceptions” to an extreme abortion ban. 
  • Dixon called Michigan’s dormant 1931 ban that makes no exceptions for rape or incest and criminalizes doctors and nurses “a good law” and pledged to enforce it as governor. 
  • Dixon celebrated the overturning of Roe v. Wade and stated that she believed women should be forced to give birth when it “may even be an awful circumstance.”

MDP spokesperson Rodericka Applewhaite issued the following statement:

“Tudor Dixon’s comments are indefensible – and her record is clear. She wants to enact a dangerous abortion ban that makes no exceptions for rape, incest, or health of the mother and favors prison sentences for doctors and nurses. Michigan women and families deserve to see the full context of her anti-abortion extremism that would drag our state backwards and put them in danger.”

Transcript:

 CHARLIE LEDUFF: The question would be like, a 14 year old who, let’s say, is a victim of abuse by an uncle.

TUDOR DIXON: Yeah, perfect example. No, perfect example.

LEDUFF: You’re saying carry that?

DIXON: The way that this could be set up is that you’re protecting that guy, and we’ve got to get those guys in jail. Because look- No, no, no, no, no

LEDUFF: That’s something else, and I agree. In fact, that guy should be hung, but-

DIXON: Cause we’ve got this new telemedicine abortion situation which happened  in this area.

LEDUFF: Nope, this is not a debate because I’m there with you… 14 years old, she’s four months pregnant, some f*ck hauled her into an alley or walked into her bedroom. You expect her to carry that thing? Yes or no? …Yes or no and then give me the answer.

DIXON: Because I know people who are the product. A life is a life for me. That’s how it is. That is for me. That’s my feeling.LEDUFF: That’s fair. You heard it. No exception except the health of the mother.
