WATCH: Tudor Dixon Says Forced Birth is “Healing” for Rape Victims

Latest News

In a new interview with FOX 2 Detroit, Tudor Dixon once again doubled down on her plan to ban abortion without exceptions for rape, incest, or the health of the mother, this time saying that forcing a teenage victim of rape to give birth is “healing.”

Watch the interview here.

“Tudor Dixon has repeatedly made it clear she is planning to ban abortion with no exceptions for rape, incest, or the health of the mother — even calling a 14-year-old-victim of incestual rape a ‘perfect example’ and now saying forced birth is ‘healing’ for rape victims,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton. “Dixon continues to show she’s too dangerous for Michigan.”

Here’s what people are saying about Dixon’s new extreme comments on her plan to ban abortion:

  • HuffPost: “Michigan’s Republican gubernatorial nominee said she does not support abortion being legal even for child rape victims, suggesting that having the baby could be ‘healing.’”
  • Business Insider: “Michigan’s Republican nominee for governor said in an interview that she believes there’s a ‘bond’ that can form between a rape victim and a child born from sexual assault if forced to go through with the pregnancy.”
  • Newsweek: “Anchor Roop Raj then asked Dixon about whether she would support terminating the pregnancy of a 14-year-old rape victim. Dixon replied that she had spoken to people who were the children of rape victims and that ‘the bond that those two people made and the fact that out of that tragedy there was healing through that baby, it’s something that we don’t think about.’”
  • Michigan Advance: “Despite complaining that Democratic attack ad had taken her comments on abortion out of context, Republican gubernatorial nominee Tudor Dixon seemed to confirm the ad’s point in a recent TV interview … when asked by FOX-2’s Roop Raj in an interview Friday about that comment, offering her a chance to clarify whether a 14-year-old rape victim should be allowed to get an abortion, Dixon again said she would oppose that.”
