Candidate's Comments:
I believe that with all the birth control options available, there should be zero unplanned pregnancies. I do not buy the narrative that women can’t afford it. The government is handing out free everything, and all women have access to refraining from sexual encounters if they are not protected. In the case of rape, women have legal processes to follow and a moral choice to make. I am not spending my taxpayer money on something under another person’s control. I have watched many of my relatives die a slow, painful death. We are free to put our animals out of their pain at the end of life. When a person is experiencing extreme pain, enduring the emotional suffering and financial burden they are placing on their family with no hope of recovery, they have the right to decide this matter. The difference for me is that In abortion, another person is making a life-death decision, and in end-of-life suicide, the individual says they can no longer stand the pain and suffering and are pleading for peace.

Candidate's Comments:
When I grew up, signs posted on many establishments said they had the right to refuse service. People who were not dressed appropriately and were unruly or disruptive to the business could be denied service. I believe it should still be that way. We live in a capitalist society, and every business owner puts their life's work and values into their business. Business owners get to choose with whom they do business. They should not have to bend to another's wishes. Other vendors will gladly do business with them. The United States was founded upon religious freedoms, and to violate that, violates our constitutional rights. I believe in the constitution, and those who want to change it must get a convention of the states to agree with them. There should be appropriate places on each college campus to speak freely. Any abuse of the right to free speech should be dealt with promptly with severe enough consequences that it won't happen again. I believe that colleges should have representatives of the three largest caucuses in each department to receive state or federal money. Our digital world of data collection and distribution and "leaks" should also be dealt with immediately and severely. Those in violation should face severe financial consequences and repair all damages they have done. They should lose business licenses, the ability to participate in charity fundraising and be subject to IRS audits.

Candidate's Comments:
I am of the frame of mind that God determines our gender. For children having difficulties, counseling services are available. Until that child is 18, their parents are to make all medical, educational, and spiritual decisions. If the child chooses to become emancipated, they can make all the decisions themselves. However, all gender transitions come out of pocket and not at the taxpayer's expense. I am not for extending nondiscrimination laws as have been in place for decades, and I believe people should be hired or admitted to the position they are applying for based on what they bring to the position. We are born with a gender, and if you choose to change it, that is your right, so long as it does not interfere with the rights of others. It is not okay to make the world comply with your deviance. Adding gender identity is interfering with the norms of our culture and interfering with the rights of others by allowing them to be sued, reprimanded, dismissed, or even canceled by not meeting a specific word from another person out of deviance.

14.
Parental Rights for Transparency in Education: Giving parents access to the curriculum and materials their children are learning in school and allowing them to decide whether or not their children should be exposed to certain ideas.
X
Candidate's Comments:
Parents are the only ones to make educational and medical decisions for their children. The curriculum needs to be transparent, and every parent can review textbooks and supplemental instructional materials before the year, quarter, or semester. As teachers embark on new units, parents must access the curriculum. Taxpayer-supported institutions will remain focused on academic education, and all social justice, social-emotional learning, and CRT curricula will be removed from public schools. Parents will have an educational account for their children to spend at the current rate schools use per-student spending. Tacoma is spending over $28,000 per student, and parents can use that money to educate their children.

Candidate's Comments:
Parents are the only ones to help the children decide on these matters. I will go one step further; parents can have the school investigated for teaching gender transitions. Unless gender transition is introduced, children will not be curious about it. Parents have the right to sue the school, district, Unions, and individuals teaching the program.
