MAGA Hot Mic: Michigan GOP Gubernatorial Nominee Tudor Dixon
October 21, 2022
Today’s MAGA Hot Mic comes from none other than Michigan’s GOP gubernatorial nominee – Tudor Dixon, who is so far deep in anti-choice extremism that she suggested patients shouldn’t trust doctors’ medical guidance when it comes to making health care decisions, regardless of whether the patient’s life is at stake.
In a newly unearthed interview, Tudor Dixon took her anti-choice extremism to new heights — suggesting that doctors’ professional medical advice on abortion was the “devil’s lie.”

Tudor Dixon: “I have so many people in my life who, if the doctors looked at that ultrasound, they would have said, ‘You’d be better off not having this child.’ And that’s just the devil’s lie.”
Let’s be clear: Dixon’s extreme rhetoric is dangerous and wildly out of step with the American people. These private decisions should be made between a woman and her doctor — not the government.
VICE: “But Dixon’s comment raises questions about whether the candidate trusts doctors’ medical opinions when it comes to abortions, regardless of whether a patient’s health or life is at stake.”
Lest we forget, Tudor Dixon supports Michigan’s abortion ban that would criminalize abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest.
Washington Post: “Dixon joins a cohort of Republicans who have, amid the fall of Roe, pushed for abortion bans without exceptions for fetuses conceived through rape or incest.”
Michigan Advance: “Dixon opposes abortion for rape victims because there’s ‘healing through the baby’”
Make no mistake: Tudor Dixon is willing to support extreme abortion bans and threaten to throw doctors behind bars for the sake of pushing her extreme, anti-choice agenda. That is what’s at stake this November.
