Whitmer & Nessel Betray Voters, Use the Courts to Impose Their Pro-Abortion Agenda
Washington, D.C. – Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America expressed deep disappointment as a Michigan judge blocked a state law that would broadly protect unborn children and their mothers from abortion throughout pregnancy.
“From a judge who donates to abortion giant Planned Parenthood but wouldn’t recuse herself, to a radical pro-abortion governor and attorney general who refuse to do their job and defend Michigan’s laws, this decision is an all-around travesty,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Michigan’s pro-life protections were estimated to save as many as 30,000 lives a year. But Governor Whitmer, Attorney General Nessel and the abortion lobby shamefully used the court system to impose their abortion-on-demand agenda, doing an end run around the legislative process and denying Michiganders a voice.
“Michigan women and their unborn children deserve so much better and the pro-life movement will never stop fighting for them. We urge the voters to remember this betrayal and hold extremists like Whitmer and Nessel accountable at the ballot box.”
Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America previously launched a six-figure ad campaign to expose Governor Whitmer’s pro-abortion extremism. The group’s Candidate Fund has endorsed Tudor Dixon in the governor’s race.
“Pro-life, pro-woman leader Tudor Dixon will stand for the people and bring back compassion and common sense to the governor’s office. We urge all Michigan voters to support her and retire Gretchen Whitmer this November.”
Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America is a network of more than one million pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
