Strongly Disagree

20. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

As a mother myself I have often thought if I had that choice I would gladly give my life for my child if need be but I think if that were to arise for someone else and a husband had to decide for his wife it might be different, especially if there more children at home. That is the ONLY scenario that I see have a problem with.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I gave my life to Jesus Christ over 20 yrs ago and have tried to live my life for him since then. HE is at the center of everything that I do including this I view this as my ministry, my dad was a politician so you could say I have it in my genes. My motivator was what is grieving God's heart, I tell my fiscal hawk friends "If we take care of what grieves God's heart, God will take care of the rest" I in my position have had an opportunity to speak about the Lord to candidates as high as the Governor. Don't get me wrong the fiscal issues are very important especially in a failing state and I am very aware because it has hit me in a personal way. My parents due to the fact we are 2nd in the nation for property taxes put their house up for sale and are moving, this is hear breaking for me. Something has to change!
