Position: Defense of Unborn Children

I classify myself as “Pro-Life.” I choose life over death, even in the womb. Legislation that allows for the killing of babies before they have had a chance at life is unacceptable to me.

We have all had a shake at life – why should an unborn child in their mother’s womb be any different?

I understand the concept of a woman having a decision on what to do with her body. However, once a baby is in the womb, that baby also is a body… within a body. Why should the mother have the ability to kill another person that is awaiting their chance at life?

There are many viable options should the mother not wish to raise the infant. She could place the infant up for adoption. She could even leave the infant with the care of numerous facilities such as Emergency Rooms, Fire Stations, Police Stations, etc that will take the infant, and see to it that they are properly cared for – no questions asked. Another possibility that I feel should be an option is when the biological father wants to raise the child, he should have the opportunity to do so before a pregnancy is terminated

As a representative of the district, I will defend Unborn Children. They need any voice they can have, and they will find that voice in me.

Agree with me? Disagree with me? Either way is fine – let me know and I will be glad to listen to what you have to say!
