Right to Life

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

Strongly Agree   

iVoterGuide Note:  Loeffler has co-sponsored four bills to protect the unborn. She asserts that she will be a fierce opponent of abortion and would support legislation to limit abortions. Loeffler voted yes on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. "I support Governor Kemp's "Heartbeat Bill" and "will back Senator Lindsey Graham's 20-week abortion ban in Washington. Every life is a blessing. Every life has value."  Source

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.

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

Strongly Agree   

iVoterGuide Note:  For nearly three decades, Kelly Loeffler was in the private sector--growing jobs and economic opportunity in our state and beyond. She knows that low taxes empower innovators and business owners to grow, expand, and invest. Kelly supports policies that make our state and country the best place for business. "Socialism, and its societal and financial costs, is a very real threat to the freedoms that allow us to prosper as a country." She championed President Trump's USMCA agreement, which will create jobs and economic opportunities in Georgia and throughout the nation. In order to balance the budget, she does not support an income tax increase on any tax bracket.  Source  Source  Source  Source

Healthcare

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

iVoterGuide Note:  Socialism, and its societal and financial costs, is a very real threat to the freedoms that allow us to prosper as a country.
