I have been married for over 31 years and I am a proud mother of three and grandmother to six. I know that strong families are essential to a strong America and marriage is the foundation for building strong families. I will always fight to protect traditional marriage and the unborn.

*Commonsense Judges: Diane has fought for commonsense judges, who uphold our freedoms by strictly interpreting the law and not legislating from the bench.
*Defunding Planned Parenthood: Diane's first bill in Congress was to ensure that taxpayer dollars were not used to fund Planned Parenthood.
*Marriage Amendment: Diane cosponsored a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman.
*DOMA: Diane cosponsored a resolution condemning President Obama for ordering the Department of Justice (DOJ) to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and demanding that the DOJ continue to defend DOMA in all instances.
*Pro-Life Expansions: Diane cosponsored several bills that expand conscience protections, affirm that life begins at conception and protect minors from being coerced into abortions.
*Obamacare: Diane fought on the front lines against President Obama's plan to require all health plans to include contraception coverage as part of the Obamacare. Diane believes that the Administration set up an impossible choice for religious affiliated institutions: either violate the law, or violate your conscience. This unprecedented assault on our 1st Amendment right to religious freedoms must not stand. The health care law does not trump our Constitution's protection of religious freedom.
