Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Agree

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.

Agree

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Better education in areas needed in the economy.

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

Over the past ten years I have advocated extensively for the rights of injured workers in the Louisiana Legislature.
