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.

(Did not answer)

Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?

(Did not answer)


Religious Liberty

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.

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

Agree   

I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.

No Answer   

What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

Freedom to practice religious beliefs without interference from government. Ability to work within government without discrimination based on religious beliefs and that religious leaders should not control legislators. The individual of whatever Organized belief system has a right to live in peace

Neutral   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.
