Right to Life Endorses Terri Lynn Land and Launches Vile Attack on Gary Peters
Proclaiming it “PAC season,” Right to Life says Gary Peters wants abortion “accessible and cheap for his daughters”
LANSING — Recently, Michiganders witnessed what is likely the first of many vile and inappropriate political attacks to come from Right to Life Michigan as the election season heats up.
Running for U.S. Senate, Rep. Gary Peters was on the receiving end of a political attack by Right to Life Michigan who shamefully dragged his teenage daughters through the mud. The organization recently endorsed Terri Lynn Land’s campaign for U.S. Senate.
“Revolting. Repellent. Repulsive. Those are a few words that come to mind when describing Right to Life’s recent attack on Rep. Gary Peters,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Adding insult to injury, Right to Life Michigan spokeswoman Pam Sherstad brushed aside criticism by saying it’s ‘PAC season.’ Let’s be clear: There is never an appropriate time to attack a public servant’s family. Terri Lynn Land should immediately denounce Right to Life Michigan and decline their endorsement.”
First, Right to Life Michigan circumvented the democratic process and Gov. Snyder’s veto pen to pass legislation requiring women purchase an extra rider for abortion coverage even in the case of rape or incest. And next they launched a vile attack on U.S. Rep. Gary Peters and his teenage daughters.
Progress Michigan launched a petition calling on Terri Lynn Land to denounce Right to Life Michigan’s disgusting tactics which you can find here: http://act.progressmichigan.org/sign/rtlwrongformichigan/
