Gretchen Whitmer’s views on abortion are extreme. Most Michiganders, whether pro-life or pro-choice, believe there should be reasonable restrictions on abortion to protect the health and safety of women and their unborn children, but Gretchen Whitmer doesn’t think there should be any limits at all.
Candidates: At a Glance
Whitmer supports abortion on-demand, up to the moment of birth paid for by taxpayers
Whitmer opposes common sense limitations on late-term abortion, even when a baby is developed enough to feel pain. She even opposes protections for babies born alive after failed abortions.
Whitmer supports forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions.
Whitmer believes abortion should be legal all the way through birth, even as a baby is being delivered, using the illegal and barbaric partial-birth abortion method.
Whitmer wants to remove parental consent requirements so young girls can obtain abortions without their parents’ knowledge.
Governor Whitmer is waging war on commonsense abortion limits that the people of Michigan support. She once called abortion, a procedure that has tragically ended the lives of more than 60 million children, “life-sustaining.” During the COVID-19 pandemic, Michiganders couldn’t buy seeds to grow food, but abortion facilities could keep their doors open for abortion on demand after Whitmer deemed it an ‘essential’ service.
Whitmer’s abortion extremism knows no bounds. She wants to force taxpayers to fund abortion and supports late-term abortions on babies who can feel excruciating pain. Whitmer also wants to remove parental consent requirements so young girls can obtain abortions without their parents’ knowledge. At a time when most Americans want to humanize and modernize our abortion laws, Whitmer’s radicalism is taking Michigan backwards.
At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Whitmer required Michiganders to delay important medical procedures, deeming them “non-essential,” while allowing elective abortions to continue. This resulted in vital personal protective equipment being used by abortion facilities while nurses and doctors treating COVID-19 patients faced a PPE shortage.
