Defend the right to life of the unborn
An unborn child is a person. In America every person has a right to life; it is in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
I will always defend the right to life of every human being, born or unborn, young or old.

Enforce ban on abortion services, except maybe for rape
Perea, a Catholic, does want the government to enforce a ban on abortion services. "On this issue I don't come from a religious perspective, I come from a constitutional perspective that every human being has a right to life," he said.
For Perea, life begins at conception.
Perea said he does struggle with the position when the Chronicle asked about abortions in cases of rape or when carrying the child to birth jeopardized the mother's safety.
