Candidate's Comments:
If abortion is a choice, then pay for it yourself. Planned Parenthood makes Billions of dollars in this industry, let them help fund it themselves like Pro life has to do. Assisted suicides lead to unintended consequences. A doctor willing to do this reminds me of Mengele who was praised for liking animals but had no trouble putting others to death.

Candidate's Comments:
for 9 I would have to see the legislation. I oppose schools and agencies doing this, but I also believe in parental rights which means they have the right to make mistakes. (It's not a perfect world). 10a: most of these laws may be well meaning but usually are misguided and abused. 10 b: same as a. California is now trying to pas pedophilia laws can be scrubbed if difference in age is under 10 years. They have also allowed transgenders who have been adjudicated to do Storytime in grade schools.

Totally pro school choice. Todays schools are failing our children. Criminal justice laws need to be reviewed when DA's like Kamala Harris pushed for stricter judgments on certain offenses and then held them beyond their time to exploit them for labor.

Candidate's Comments:
Medicare for all and continually raising taxes would eventually drive our country to bankruptcy. Look how Cuomo is begging rich New Yorkers to stay in New York. That should tell us something.
