This is actually the second time I’ve seen a South Dakota legislative candidate announce they had an abortion.
Last election it was Democrat candidate Ellee Spawn talking about having no regrets over having an abortion. This election, Tina Mulally has actually sent out a postcard talking about how she survived her abortion. I’m not sure it’s any less cringeworthy.
I’m not sure how this announcement shows her in the eyes of the voters as being more competent and qualified than her opponent, Terri Haverly, who is also pro-life, or convinces voters they should choose her.
It strikes me as going past information about her position, into the realm of personal information I did not want, nor need.
Especially on the front of a postcard.
(And another postcard from Bemidji Minnesota, btw).
