I am morally opposed to abortion for any reason. However, I would be willing to have a conversation regarding circumstances where the mothers life is at risk or there is another absolutely dire circumstance.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I was brought up with a variety of religious backgrounds. My mother was Catholic, her family was Lutheran, and my fathers family was Jewish. I was given an amazing opportunity from this young age to look within myself and find the true meaning of faith and God. I am a Christian and believe that this helps for the basis of my life's work and actions.
