The Constitution allows every person to worship, or not. I worship as a Christian. I will not tolerate someone who abridges that right for me or others.

Right to life — I am a pro-life Christian. I am passionate about women’s issues. I am for empowering women through evidence-based research to choose life, and I support offering options, such as adoption, to ensure they and their children have a secure place in society.

Gay marriage — The Supreme Court ruled same-sex couples have the right to wed in the eyes of the law. I will oppose vigorously any effort to tell churches that they must perform same-sex marriages. Make no mistake, it isn’t prejudiced; it’s the first amendment.Doing otherwise would reject our fundamental right to religious liberty.
