Right to Life

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.

Strongly Agree   

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.

Strongly Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Compulsion due to medical condition of the mother and rape victims

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Fiscal conservatism, lean government, and protection by legislation.

What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?

Welfare schemes should be time-bound to train young and healthy people to become competent and self-supporting. Reduce the size of government. Privatization of products and services.

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.

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?

"In God we Trust" is our Government's motto. So, it is already integrated into our state philosophy. Belief in God inculcates fear of committing sin and good moral values in governance.

Strongly Disagree
