GOP Attorney General Candidates Oppose Landmark Contraception Law

A trio of GOP candidates for attorney general in Michigan were asked at a debate their thoughts on Griswold v. Connecticut, a 1965 Supreme Court decision that struck down a ban on the sale of contraceptives. The Griswold decision helped paved the way for 1973’s Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion.

All three candidates stated they thought the decision was wrongly decided, and that it trampled on states’ rights.

But first, they had to clarify what Griswold v. Connecticut was, including one candidate who Googled it.

Matt DePerno, the deplorable candidate endorsed by TFG, had this: “We need to start defending state rights as attorney generals, across this country,” he said. “Too many people, even in our own party, too many people have lost the idea of what states’ rights means. They haven’t read the works of our Founding Fathers. They haven’t read The Federalist Papers. They continue to push the idea that we need to give rights away to the federal government. We don’t. We need to take state rights back. We need to stand in our borders. When the feds come and try to take our rights, we need to stand as citizens in Michigan and hold the line and protect states’ rights.”

Also, all three candidates voiced full support for a “forensic audit” of the 2020 election, which President Joe Biden won in Michigan by 154,000 votes. DePerno was also involved in the fraudit of Arizona’s election, and said that not only the election machines should be looked at, but he wants to examine the paper used.
