Steven Rathje on Abortion

Republican Senate Challenger


I will only vote to confirm constructionist judges

It's crucial we elect leaders to appoint strong constructionist judges to the Supreme Court that will rule according to the law outlined in the Constitution and not interpret or legislate from the bench. As your Senator I will only vote to confirm constructionist judges.

Opposed to any embryonic stem cell research

Steve Rathje is opposed to any stem cell research that destroys a living embryo and will not support funding by your tax dollars. He does, however, support research advances in adult stem cells and infant cord blood which does not require destroying human embryos. He is also opposed to any form of human cloning.
