The Senate race in Michigan is still close. Here at CV, our team has been watching Terri Lynn Land and Gary Peters so we can offer Catholic voters in Michigan a recommendation.
Many issues are at stake in this election, and the Michigan race is crucial to get our country back on track. This flyer outlines where the candidates stand on issues of importance for Catholics.
After reviewing their positions, we believe that Terri Lynn Land is the right choice for U.S. Senate.
Gary Peters has consistently fought for a culture of death in Michigan through his work as a Congressman in the House of Representatives. He has actively opposed protecting the religious freedom of Catholics and he supports the taxpayer funding of abortion.
In addition to showing where the candidates stand on issues like abortion, which is an intrinsic evil that must always be opposed, we have also included other important topics for consideration. The Church provides frameworks for issues like healthcare and education, but Catholics are free to disagree on the specifics of how best to approach these issues.
