Protect the unborn; overturn Roe v. Wade

I believe strongly in protecting the unborn. Thomas Jefferson once said, "The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government." I have consistently supported pro-life measures to reduce the frequency of abortion and to inform mothers considering abortion about alternatives like adoption. I also signed the petition in 2008 to place the "abortion ban" initiative on the ballot, so that our state could lead the fight to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Ban embryonic stem cell research

I support our state's ban on embryonic stem cell research. Even if this research could potentially improve some lives, it should not be conducted at the expense of other lives. I am hopeful that advances in the use of adult stem cells will make embryonic stem cell research a thing of the past.
