Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
It is my personal belief that abortion should not be permitted under any circumstances.
What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?
Our founding fathers saw the tyranny that occurred under King George and the British crown.

All of my votes are posted on my official website, at black.house.gov. I am proud to be tied as the most conservative woman in the House of Representatives for 2015 according to the American Conservative Union. I have a 100% pro-life voting record, I am endorsed by the NRA, and I have voted against my own party leadership when they stray from our conservative principles, as evidenced by my votes against the 2015 Boehner-Obama budget, the flawed "fiscal cliff" deal and last December's $1.1 trillion omnibus bill to name a few.

Additional comment from candidate:
Now, more than ever, we must send battle-tested conservatives to Washington to restore the Constitutional separation of powers envisioned by our nation’s founders and to fight back against the political establishment of both parties. That is why I’m running for reelection. I’m a career nurse, not a career politician, but I’ve got plenty of fight left in me and, with the prayers and support of 6th District Tennesseans, I want to continue the movement that we’ve started together.
