Senate Candidates: At a Glance

Gary Peters’ views on abortion are extreme.  Most Michiganders, whether pro-life or pro-choice, believes there should be reasonable restrictions on abortion to protect the health and safety of women and their unborn children, but Senator Gary Peters doesn’t think there should be any limits at all.

Throughout his career as a politician, Peters has voted for abortion on demand up to the moment of birth paid for by taxpayers.

John James said: “I am 100% Pro-Life. Always have been. Always will be.”1

At a campaign event in Lansing, Michigan, John James said:

“They want to do away with our children — 50 million dead since Roe v. Wade,” James said at the event. “That’s unacceptable. I have to recount, not to anybody in this room or anybody in Washington, but with the Lord. I want to hear seven words: Well done my good and faithful servant. Standing by and letting this genocide continue stands in the way of that happening.”
