Abortion Brought to Forefront in Michigan Governor's Race

Detroit Free Press: Bernero takes on Snyder over abortion issue, calls foe 'extreme', by Chris Christoff:

Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Virg Bernero cranked up the abortion issue in the campaign today, saying while he believes in a woman’s right to choose, his Republican opponent Rick Snyder and Snyder’s running mate Rep. Brian Calley, R-Portland, hold “extreme” views against abortion that would jeopardize women’s rights and health.

Bernero, joined by his running mate, Southfield Mayor Brenda Lawrence, said Snyder’s opposition to abortion in cases that threaten a woman’s health shows insensitivity to women’s rights.

They were endorsed by Planned Parenthood, the state’s leading advocate for abortion rights. . . .
