Right to Life

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

No Answer   

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

No Answer   

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.

Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I do not wish to impose my own personal beliefs on this sensitive matter onto others because I do respect a woman's right to make her own decisions free from government interference. I do not it would be fair for the government to enact laws to require a woman who has been raped or the victim of incest to carry a baby to term. I also believe that a woman should not have to risk her own health to carry a baby to term if doing so would cause her serious health risk. I think women should be permitted to make these decisions based upon their own beliefs under the guidance of medical professionals and their own support systems (i.e., family, religion, etc.). I will, however, challenge any radical legislation that would allow the abortion of full-term babies, outlaw parental notification for minors, and authorize non-licensed physicians to perform abortions.

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.

National Security

The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Agree   


Immigration

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.

Strongly Agree   

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.
