Candidate's Comments:
I oppose late term abortions and support all patients being required to receive information on all alternatives and options. I support voluntary euthanasia but am adamant that language be very specific so that only the individual can make the decision and only after determining mental competency. I support this the same as the belief in individuals being able to decide to sign a Do Not Resuscitate order.

While I support religious freedom I also believe that professions such as physicians, first responders, police officers, etc must not go into the job with any bias or discrimination. I oppose requiring social media companies like any private company from being mandated by the government on their individual policies.

Candidate's Comments:
While I support my trans brothers and sisters I believe that sports in particular are a grey area that we need to spend more time in focusing on to make sure that we don't create an unfair environment for other athletes who work hard for what they have accomplished. This isn't a cut and dry issue and needs to be handled with more than a broad brush as some would suggest. I support partental rights and getting a child counseling to help them come to terms with their identity as well as any other underlying issues but let me be clear I support counseling not conversion therapy or any other form of brain washing techniques that are detrimental to self growth and identity.

As I mentioned in an earlier response I believe that everyone who is in need of medical assistance needs to peace of mind that when they are in a life or death situation the individual working with them is coming from a place of putting them first with no bias.
