Many of us out there didn't report rape, and Tudor Dixon is a perfect example of why that happens. She would be in your 14-year-old face telling you it will heal you to give birth to your rapist's baby. No, girl. Just no. If you think Republican men are the worst, get a load of Tudor Dixon, the Republican nominee for governor of Michigan. This Trump-endorsed candidate is a whole entire bitch.

Via Newsweek:

She described as "fake" stories that there were no dispensations for women who have, for instance, ectopic pregnancies amid a confusing legal landscape following the Supreme Court's overturning of Roe vs. Wade, which had guaranteed a women's federal right to an abortion.

Anchor Roop Raj went there and asked the MAGA candidate whether she would support terminating the pregnancy of a 14-year-old rape victim. And that's a good question considering that there are conservatives who support forcing a 10-year-old to give birth.

Dixon told Raj that she had talked to people (I'm relatively certain that this never happened) who were the children of rape victims and that "the bond that those two people made and the fact that out of that tragedy there was healing through that baby, it's something that we don't think about."

"We assume that that story is someone who was taken from the front yard, then returned," she told the anchor.

"Those voices—the babies of rape victims—that have come forward are very powerful when you hear their story and what the truth is behind that," she added. "It's very hard to not stand up for those people."

This story feels personal to me. I don't like talking about myself, but fuckit -- here goes. I did not report a rape, and I aborted my rapist's fetus. Well, it was one of two guys. Dixon is the worst of society. The thing is that I was suicidal at the time. It was me or giving birth to that violent monster's baby. I chose me.

Please tell me how Dixon is 'pro-life' because I'm sick of this shit. There are so many of us out there. When they overturned Roe, we knew this would get ugly, but holy shit, I literally feel sick to my stomach. We're talking about kids being forced to give birth. If I couldn't handle it when I was in my early 30s, how in the f*ck is a 14-year-old supposed to deal with it?

Can you help us out?
