The Democrats are quickly moving further left.
They are dropping all pretense of being a moderate party.
And Gretchen Whitmer just took an extreme action in response to a new SCOTUS ruling.
The Democrats think they’re “owning it” with their radicalism ever since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in the Dobbs decision.
Democrats are behaving as if abortion was banned all across the country.
Now Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is using a pen to take pro-life and pro-family items out of the state budget.
Breitbart reported that Whitmer “used her line veto power Wednesday to eliminate state support for adoption agencies, pregnancy facilities, and maternity homes proposed as alternatives to abortion. Before signing the $76 billion state budget, Whitmer cancelled a $2 million adoption tax credit, $10 million to promote adoption ‘as an alternative to abortion,’ $3 million for a maternal navigator pilot program, and $700,000 for the Real Alternatives pregnancy program, which promotes ‘childbirth, alternatives to abortion, and grief counseling.’ Whitmer’s budget will, on the other hand, significantly grow state government by adding some 535 full-time positions to the public payroll, the Detroit Free Press reported, a whopping single-year increase of more than 1.3 percent.”
Whitmer targeted the cuts out of naked political dedication to killing babies.
The Michigan Governor is certainly no budget hawk making shrewd economic calculations.
She first became notorious for imposing some of the harshest and most nonsensical COVID lockdowns in the country.
For example, she closed down certain sections of big-box stores, and prevented people from traveling to their second homes.
Meanwhile, her husband joked about being able to take his boat out on the water because he was married to the governor.
A Michigan barber had his license suspended for defying Whitmer’s orders.
And Michigan Cafe owner Dave Morris went viral for standing up to Whitmer’s orders, calling them “tyranny.”
You can either be on this guy’s side or on the side of the tyrants who rule us. I know which side I choose.

Whitmer is going along with the Democrat narrative of demonizing crisis pregnancy centers, which shows how demented the Left have become.
They want the centers shut down because Democrats worship abortion as a sacrament.
Republican State Representative Thomas Albert said that Whitmer’s line-item vetoes “support only one option for women in a crisis pregnancy — the deadly choice of abortion…It is shocking that the governor, and her far left political base, are now so extreme that helping pregnant women who might consider adoption instead is now a bridge too far.”
Whitmer is signaling where the Democrats are going on abortion.
They no longer believe in “safe, legal, and rare.”
Democrats celebrate abortion today.
