GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Says 14-Year-Old Incest Victims Should Birth Rapist’s Child

During a recent interview, Michigan GOP candidate for governor Tudor Dixon said she does not support abortions in any case except for protecting the life of the mother, arguing that a woman should carry a pregnancy to term even in the case of rape or incest.

Dixon told Charlie LeDuff on his podcast show No BS Newshour on Monday that even in the case in which a 14-year-old was raped by an uncle, she would not support abortion.

“A life is a life for me,” Dixon said. “That’s how it is. That is for me, that’s my feeling.”

LeDuff asked Dixon if her hardline stance on abortion would alienate some voters, but the GOP candidate said most Michiganders are against “abortion on demand.”

“They think that’s the winning issue, but most Americans do not believe in this third-trimester abortion, partial abortion, ripping babies out and pulling them out of their mother,” she said. “That kind of stuff, that’s on the ballot.”

Dixon’s comments during questioning about the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe V. Wade last month.

Red states have moved to ban or severely restrict abortions in nearly all cases, with some even limiting abortions in the case of rape or incest.

Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is battling with the Republican-controlled state legislature over a 1931 Michigan law that bans abortions in nearly all cases, including for rape or incest.
