I am for life and the only candidate running for the 81st district that received the Kansans for Life (KFL) endorsement. I believe life should be protected from conception to natural death. That means NO to abortion and NO to euthanasia. As co-founder of HopeNet, Inc., a ministry to pregnant women in crisis, I believe women and their children should be assured that the facility and doctors she chooses are regulated and maintained to the highest levels of government standards. There are times that the life of the mother and child are at risk and we should try to save the lives of both the mother and child. Both lives should receive equal protection under the law. Far too many babies have been killed on the pretense that the mother's life is at risk, when in fact, due to incredible advances in medical technology, viability outside a mother's womb may simply be a few days away. I will work hard to ensure that current laws are enforced and new laws are written to protect the unborn.
