Candidate's Comments:
Abortion is health care, for the first three months, the embryo has no working nervous system and feels no pain. Republicans go to great lengths to keep the poor in poverty, a woman's decision to have children is her's alone. The Supreme Court has already given a woman the right to choose. Terminal illness is a heart-wrenching process for both the sick and the family. End of life plans is a matter for the patient and the doctor.

The right to swing your fist ends at the other person's nose. No one is forced to go against their religious beliefs until it endangers the public or a child (Hermanson v. Fl). Campuses are shared areas, so to avoid triggers, it is best to have certain areas for debates etc. social media is uncensored with rules that vary according to groups. it is easy to avoid topics and groups one dislikes.

Had I given the child the insulin, I would have lost my job, but that would have in accordance with my religion. let's stick with science.
