Earlier this week, a candidate for state representative in Michigan said she would vote to ban all contraception if the situation arose.
Jacky Eubanks, a Trump-endorsed candidate, said that contraception is against God’s “moral order,” when being interviewed by Catholic journalist Michael Voris of Church Militant. Voris asked her how she would respond to critics who call her a “loony” who wants to ban contraception.
Eubanks responded by affirming that should would indeed vote that way:
“Would that ever come to a vote in the Michigan state legislature, and if it should, I would have to side with it should not be legal. I think that people believe that birth control is better… because, ‘Oh then you won’t get pregnant and you won’t need to have an abortion.’ But I think it gives people the false sense of security that they can have consequence-free sex. And that’s not true! Sex ought to be between one man and one woman in the confines of marriage… and open to life. Absolutely.”
Eubanks also argued in the interview that “you cannot have a successful society outside of the Christian moral order and things like abortion and things like gay marriage are outside of the Christian moral order, and they lead to chaos and destruction and a culture of death.”
When Voris indicated that of course the Supreme Court is going after gay rights next, because they should, Eubanks responded, “Yes. The reason the west is great, is because Western society is underpinned by Christianity.”
In addition to her crusade against what she believes to be immoral sexual practices, Eubanks is a very serious supporter of former President Donald Trump, who has been married three times, admitted to infidelity against all of them, and who was once caught on tape bragging about being able to grab women’s genitals without repercussions. So maybe her opinion on sexual morality should be taken with a grain of salt.
