* Abortion - Protecting those who can't protect themselves.
In my mind the question of whether we as a society should protect human life is not a difficult one to answer. I have always believed that abortion as a form of birth control is absolutely unacceptable and that it is our responsibility to protect the lives of those who can't protect themselves. We, as a society, must advocate the right to life, and protect the lives of the unborn. When I am elected to the House of Representatives I will always fight to protect life.
To me marriage has been, is, and will always be the union between one woman and one man. I will protect the integrity of the institution of marriage. I believe that a marriage is a union of a man and a woman before their peers, government, and most importantly, God. In southeastern Indiana the family has always been the foundation of our strength of community. Our relationships with our wives, husbands, parents, children, siblings and other loved ones provides the glue that binds our common purpose. In these times of turmoil the rest of the country could learn something from our example. I will fight to make sure that traditional Hoosier and American values are protected and that our elected government works to maintain them. I will also work to make sure that we, in Southeastern Indiana, are an example to others, and that we lead our nation back to the core values that made our country great.
