WATCH: New TV Ad Slams Tudor Dixon’s Plan to Throw Doctors and Nurses Behind Bars
Put Michigan First is launching a new TV ad — “Behind Bars” — exposing Tudor Dixon’s support for a radical law that would ban abortion and throw doctors and nurses behind bars. Watch the new ad here.
Dixon has called Michigan’s 1931 abortion ban, which has no exceptions for rape or incest and would criminalize abortion, “a good law.” The law would make it a felony for doctors and nurses to perform abortions.
“Tudor Dixon’s radical plan to ban and criminalize abortion without exceptions is dangerous for Michigan women, doctors, and nurses,” said Put Michigan First Spokesperson Sam Newton. “With this ad, we’re continuing to hold Dixon accountable and show Michiganders how out of touch and extreme she really is.”
