Because human life is sacred, I am committed to protecting the most vulnerable in our society. No group is more vulnerable or more worthy of protection than unborn children. From the point of conception until our last breath on earth life is sacred and should be protected. Abortion is currently a federal issue. I support measures on a state level that can protect more unborn children.
The sanctity of life is not only an abortion issue; it also can deal with end-of-life issues. I am against assisted suicide. An individual can choose how to treat or not treat a problem on his or her own, but a doctor should not, in any way, be asked to step into the role of executioner. I am sure that most all doctors who would help in these cases would do it out of compassion. However, I fear the few that would warp the process or distort this illusion of power into something we don't want to imagine.
The death penalty should be eliminated. I would hate to be the juror who recommended someone be put to death and later found out DNA had exonerated the person. We can incarcerate without the chance of parole. I know that for me that would be a great punishment, an even greater punishment than death
