I believe that life begins at conception. I will vote against government funding of abortion services and will vote to defund Planned Parenthood.
I am hopeful that scientific discoveries and engineering advancements like ultrasound will continue to improve public understanding about the existence of life before birth. As public perception and morality shifts it will be easier to pass laws that will guarantee the rights of the unborn. I support a Constitutional Amendment banning abortion and until that can be achieved, I support overturning Roe v. Wade thereby allowing individual states to decide abortion issues. Furthermore I believe no public money should ever be spent on abortion procedures, abortion pills, or embryonic stem cell research.
