Melissa Gilbert, the actress made famous for playing the beloved character of Laura Ingalls on TV’s Little House on the Prairie in the late 70s and early 80s, announced her run for Congress on Monday. She is running for Michigan’s eighth congressional district.
In announcing her candidacy, Gilbert tweeted, “Please join me in my fight for working families.”
Her campaign platform sounds pro-family, and her childhood TV show certainly was pro-family, but a list of Gilbert’s supporters does not show a single conservative, pro-family organization. In fact, Gilbert is supported by some of the fiercest abortion advocates in the nation.
That’s because Gilbert, 51, is a longtime supporter of abortion.
