Terri Lynn Land knows what women want: Others controlling their bodies

by: Eric B.

Tue May 20, 2014 at 16:57:11 PM EDT

We now know why Terri Lynn Land sat there silent, drinking coffee, during her terrible "I'm a woman, therefore everything I say is what women want" ad. It's because if she'd opened her mouth, she might have let this slip.

* Terri Lynn Land: The Michigan Senate candidate appears to support Personhood and oppose abortion even in cases of rape or incest. Land has received the endorsement of Michigan Right to Life. David Malone, the executive director of the Michigan Right to Life PAC, tells me that no legislative candidate gets this endorsement unless he or she is “pro-life with no exceptions other than the life of the mother,” and unless he or she agrees to a “Human Life Amendment to the U.S.  Constitution, effectively establishing personhood from the moment of  conception.”

This language is detailed in the PAC’s endorsement criteria, which also require the candidate filling out a questionnaire detailing these positions.

A spokesperson for Land did not reply to a request for clarification of her position; I’ll update if I hear back. When questioned by Politico, Land did not mention rape or incest as exceptions to her opposition to abortion.

Declining to clarify when pointedly asked is the same thing as confirming. On abortion, what Terri Lynn Land instinctively knows that every woman wants is the state -- in the form of mostly older white men -- to make their medical decisions for them. Totally.
