Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.
Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.
I support the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which requires health care providers to provide life-saving treatment for infants who survive an attempted abortion.
Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
Abortion is murder, period. Under no circumstances should it be allowed and I will NOT compromise a single inch. As a mother to five children, I know that all life is innocent. I've been involved in pro-life activism for over thirty years. I have led youth groups to the March for Life six years in a row and I have protested in State Houses and marched all across the country to defend the unborn. We WILL end abortion forever in Georgia.
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.
Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.
What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?
I would leave no stone unturned in my quest to reduce government expenditures. I have to balance my household budget the same as you. Why should the government be any different? As I've stated previously, I'm interested in looking at re-deploying the investment we're making in Hollywood studios to put that towards rural GA.
Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.
Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.
Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.
I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.
What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?
America was founded on religious liberty. That means you have the freedom to worship God and form religious congregations as you see fit. Up until a few years ago, this was the norm in our society. But now our society is being transformed. People with traditional values are being persecuted by socialist Democrats, the media, and even educational institutions. Their evil vision for our country is very clear - they want to shout Christians into submission while they poison our culture and our children's minds. This is why I 100% support religious education and homeschooling along with all manners of protections for religious liberty. We have a right to live our lives and teach our children our values!
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
As a Registered Nurse and wife to a cardiologist, I know for certain that America's healthcare system can be the best in the world. We have the top talent and the best schools on the entire planet. What we MUST do, however, is stimulate competition on the delivery side of the system. Doctors should be able to practice across state lines without needing the the government's permission to do so. We must also make investments in telehealth and rural medicine to improve outcomes.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.
I am in favor of construction of a wall and other necessary infrastructure on our border that gives complete control over entering and exiting the United States.
State and federal funds should be denied to any public or private entity, including but not limited to sanctuary cities, that are not in compliance with immigration laws.
Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?
We need to put a dramatic HALT to immigration into this country in order to protect AMERICAN workers and their interests. Low-skill immigration from the southern border has been used as a battering ram against working class people in this country for years leading to suppressed wages and a weakened labor market. Now, tech firms and their allies are demanding the importation of cheap labor from all across the globe in order to replace American workers. Not on my watch! I also want to take a very strong look at foreign admissions into state-funded schools. Our Georgia boys and girls are just as good as anyone else. We need to put THEM first.
Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.
Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.
I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.
Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I am a conservative Catholic Christian. I gave my life to the Lord Jesus Christ over thirty years ago and I have not looked back since. My family and I attend services every Sunday and we have raised our five children to hold fast to the Gospel. As a Christian, I know that many of our society's challenges cannot be fixed by legislation alone. Our society has turned against God and look at the results! Abortion, perversion, and all manners of evil are celebrated by the mainstream media. We must bring God BACK into the equation if we to are leave a nation behind for our children and grandchildren.
When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?
Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.
I'm a pro-life, pro-gun, and pro-business Christian conservative Republican. I've published several press releases and letters to the editor during my campaign outlining my vision for District 1. I have linked them below. https://www.dadeplanet.com/single-post/2020/03/06/Vikki-Mills-Announces-for-Dist-1 https://www.dadeplanet.com/single-post/2020/03/31/Letter-to-the https://www.dadeplanet.com/single-post/2020/04/16/%E2%80%9CAll-Workers-Essential-Candidate-Mills-Wants-Georgia-to-Reopen
What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?
As a mother to five children, a wife of thirty-two years, and a Christian I know the Gospel tells me to live out my faith in words and deeds. Values must translate into action. It is not enough to say you are for something. What are you actually doing about it? The Gospel tells us to tend to the sick and I worked for years as a nurse trying to do just that after earning degrees at Emmanuel College and the Worcester City Hospital School of Nursing. After meeting my husband, I retired from nursing to raise our five children. These years with my children gave me a profound reverence for all of God’s creation and led me towards pro-life activism. I have also volunteered at the Pregnancy Help Center in Chattanooga to help mothers and fathers in their time of need. Ultimately, voters should know that I am a woman of principle and action. I’m a political outsider and I will not be beholden to the special interests. Being your state representative will be my full-time job.
Have you ever been convicted of a felony or been penalized for sexual misconduct? If so, please explain.
I have not.
Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?
I will fight for Walker County’s workers and small businesses in the recovery to come! You make up the heart of your community. If elected, I will ensure you are not forgotten!
I support the use of Sharia law as a basis for legislation and judicial decisions in the United States.
Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.
Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?
What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?
All human beings have a God-given right to self-defense. This right should be impeded ONLY under the most dire circumstances and with full due process rights. The answer to protecting public safety is NOT more laws. We need to teach young people about proper respect for themselves and all weapons. Gun safety begins at home.
People should be able to vote without photo identification.
I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.
The Electoral College should be abolished.
In priority order, what three areas of legislation do you propose to author or sponsor if elected?
1: Economic Recovery for Rural GA - My district is very rural and was struggling before the government-mandated shutdowns. My attention will turn immediately to helping families and small businesses recover. 2: End Hollywood Tax Credits - Part of my plan for helping rural GA is to END the outrageous Hollywood Tax Credits that are given to studios who film in Georgia. When our legislators passed the Heartbeat Bill to protect our unborn these same studios threatened to lead a national boycott against our state. Hollywood can promote their evil values elsewhere. We will put Georgians first. 3: Defend the Second Amendment and expand gun access where sensible. The socialist Democrats want to take away our ability to defend ourselves and our families. Several bills have been filed in the Assembly including tyrannical Red Flag legislation which could strip away your ability to protect yourself without ANY due process. I will stand UNITED with fellow Republicans to stop this madness!
Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?
We are Americans first and foremost. The true threat to our national security are those who seek to divide us by race and class. Media interests such as MSNBC and politicians such as Stacey Abrams seek to inflame racial tensions and gain power as a result. We cannot fall for their "divide and conquer" tactics. We must stand as one country and one people.
