Issue Position: Right to Life Issues

Issue Position

Location: Unknown

I firmly believe that the right to life for all human beings must be respected at every stage of biological development, from conception to natural death. I oppose abortion in all cases except in instances when the life of the mother is legitimately endangered.

Any rationing of health care that results in the denial of life-saving medical treatment against the will of the patient is an unacceptable form of involuntary euthanasia, which is why I firmly believe that ObamaCare must be defunded and ultimately repealed, as it will ultimately ration healthcare once it is fully implemented.

I fully support the following pro-life positions:

*The complete reversal of the Roe v. Wade in order to allow Congress and the state legislatures to decide the issue rather than a simple majority of justices on the Supreme Court
*The complete removal of federal taxpayer dollars from the abortion industry, including the defunding of Planned Parenthood
*The "Hyde Amendment" and oppose any federal monies from Medicaid from being used to pay for abortions or for managed-care plans that include abortion, except to save the life of the mother
*I oppose chemically-induced abortions, including the use of RU-486 and the use of other drugs known to prevent a newly created human being from implanting in a mother's womb
*The right of medical professionals and pharmacists to sign "conscience clauses" that allow them to opt out of and not participate in any induced or elective abortion procedure
*I support the practice of adult stem cell research, which has yielded numerous therapeutic treatments; but I oppose embryonic stem cell research, which has yet to produce a single cure
*I support a complete ban on the cloning of human embryos for either research or reproduction
