Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe life of the mother is supported scripturally. However, I would support a bill that included rape and incest as well.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in the sovereignty of God, and that the plenary infallible Word of God contains everything we need for life and godliness. Being a believer in the one true God isn't what I do, it is who I am and I cannot separate that from any area of my life.

Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?

Very Conservative

Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

I encourage every voter to look at my voting record from the 82nd Legislative Session. I was rated the 4th most conservative member of the Texas House, and had a consistent record of voting for the 2nd Amendment, lower taxes, limited government, reduced government spending, border security, and pro-life.

Additional comment from candidate:

I am running to give the people of Lubbock the opportunity to vote for a true Conservative. Someone who will represent the people, not the special interest groups. Someone who will pledge their support to Lubbock instead of the Elite Austin Establishment. We live in one of the most conservative districts in the state, and it is time to have a representative whose voting record reflects our conservative values.
