MAGA Hot Mic: Michigan GOP Congressional Nominee John Gibbs
August 15, 2022
John Gibbs: “There are many great Americans all around the country who were actually conceived from rape.”
Today’s MAGA Hot Mic moment comes from John Gibbs, the Trump-endorsed GOP nominee for Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District.
Not only did John Gibbs proudly go on the record calling for an abortion ban with no exceptions for rape and incest, but he took his anti-abortion stance to a new extreme with comments dismissing victims of miscarriage and rape.
Detroit News: “Gibbs claimed it’s rare that a mother’s life can’t be saved without an abortion and said laws should be carefully written to ensure such situations don’t serve as a ‘workaround’ that would promote abortion. ‘It’s definitely not true that the only solution in this case is abortion,’ Gibbs said. Gibbs dismissed the idea that women post-Roe might be at risk for unsafe procedures, calling it a scare tactic.”
GIBBS: “There are many great Americans all around the country who were actually conceived from rape, and they’re doing great things.”
John Gibbs and extreme MAGA Republicans have no concern for the reproductive health of Americans, and they continue to make clear overturning Roe was only the beginning of their war on Americans’ right to choose. It is critical American’s know what’s at stake as reproductive rights are on the ballot in November.
