James Also Refuses to Support Exceptions for Saving Woman’s Life
This week, Washington Republicans pushed two rigid anti-choice bills that would put uncompromising restrictions on the relationship between a woman and her doctor. In a newly uncovered video, failed Senate candidate John James reveals once again his inflexible views on women’s health care and that he would be a rubber stamp for harsh GOP anti-choice measures.
Watch the video of James HERE:
In the video from a 2018 FOX 2 interview, James is asked whether he is “in favor of the repeal of Roe v. Wade and limitation of the right to choose for women.” James confirms, saying, “I’m against Roe v Wade”
James has previously called abortion “genocide”, pledged to oppose any judicial nominee who didn’t “openly call for abortion to be outlawed” even in cases of rape and incest, and tweeted that he “will not stop fighting until we end abortion.”
“John James’ out-of-touch position against Roe v. Wade, endorsements from anti-choice groups, and refusal to support any exceptions for abortion make crystal clear that he thinks Washington Republicans know better than Michigan women and their own doctors,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “James’ rigid views are out of step with Michiganders.”
The Michigan Democratic Party launched JohnJamesRevealed.com to hold the failed U.S. Senate candidate accountable for his positions – including those made over the course of the 2018 campaign that he then tried to delete after losing that campaign. Since announcing he’d run again, just over six months after his last failed bid, James has been hiding from Michigan voters and refusing to answer questions from Michigan media.
