For Gov. Whitmer, abortion 'takes precedent'

I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)Though Michigan's governor has yet to make the big announcement, a pro-lifer says she is already running for re-election in 2022. And he knows her aim is to carry on with her "total" commitment to abortion, no matter the cost.

As OneNewsNow has previously reported, the House Democratic Caucus has submitted a radical pro-abortion bill, and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D), who is rabidly pro-abortion, has signed off on it.

"It would remove pretty much every pro-life protection in law," explains Chris Gast of Right to Life of Michigan. "It would create a broad right to abortion all the way through the process of birth. It is abortion on steroids."

In addition, the measure would legalize the gruesome partial-birth abortion procedure, should Congress rescind the federal law, and any minor could obtain an abortion without parental consent or notification.

All things considered, Gast does not believe the the governor is really in tune with her constituents.

"Governor Whitmer does not care that parents might object to their 15-year-old girl having an abortion without even letting the parent know," the pro-lifer insists. "Gretchen Whitmer's commitment to abortion is total, and for her, that takes precedent over everything, including parental rights."

While he does not foresee the majority pro-life legislature approving the bill, Gast says the governor is hoping for a Democrat wave in the 2022 election that will keep her in office and shift the state legislature to a pro-abortion majority.
