Tudor Dixon Statement on Dobbs Supreme Court Decision

GRAND HAVEN, MI - Republican gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon, who received the sole endorsement from Right to Life of Michigan, released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade Friday:

Today is not just a day for celebration as it is an affirmation that life is precious, but it is a day for action.

As I said when a draft opinion from the case was first leaked in May, we have come a long way since the Roe v. Wade decision. Technology allows us to see our baby before birth. Miraculous medical developments now make it possible for babies to survive outside the womb far earlier than when the Roe decision was made.  Truly, so much has changed. 

But what has never changed is the preciousness of life. 

I am pro-life. I am pro-family.  I am pro-mother.  I am pro-woman. 

In the coming days, weeks, and months we will hear politicians and pundits weaponize the topic of abortion to further divide us. But make no mistake, they care nothing about the women now or in the future facing the enormous life changes and challenges that motherhood brings.

For those women, I share this:

We are with you.  You can do it.  You can have a brilliant and distinguished career and be a wonderful mother.  You can support your children.  You will find a way to do it all because you are strong, capable women.  An unmatchable inner strength inside you will be unleashed the moment you hold that baby in your arms for the very first time.  It may be hard.  It may even be an awful circumstance.  But I promise you this, the deepest love you have ever felt will come over you when that baby wraps its little hand around your finger, knowing you are mom. 

Do not listen to the poisonous people that want you to believe you have to pick and choose.  You don't.  That is glass-ceiling thinking.  Do not let anyone tell you that you can't do it.  You can.

It may not be easy, but we will support you.

As Governor, I will support and enact policies that lift up mothers and children.

Every facet of America's public policy and society should reflect an unflinching commitment to supporting American families.  

Our vision for a just America is one that fosters a culture of life, from womb to grave. One where families can have children--and afford them. 

We should make it easier to have and raise a family by creating policies that afford parents quality time with their children and make it easier to adopt. 

That means the federal government should no longer use the tax code to penalize marriage or extract money from families when their loved ones die. 

That means states should prioritize reforming and improving our child welfare and foster systems instead of treating them like a black box that we don't talk about. 

That means corporations should step up and support paid family leave.  No, this doesn't have to be a mandate. Great companies are built on great people. People will be happier, healthier, and more productive if their home life is good their family is a source of joy, not stress. 

Government and businesses should recognize this reality and begin to adjust accordingly.  

The whole of American government and society should unite and finally embrace pro-family policies. 

Our women, our children, our families, our nation, and our world, and our future will be better for it.
