The Declaration of Independence states that we are all “created equal” and endowed by our Creator “with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life…” Life is precious. It is the most fundamental right of humankind. Government should protect every innocent human being from the beginning of life to his or her natural death.

I will fight for the worth and dignity of every individual, including unborn children, those with disabilities, the elderly, and other vulnerable people, especially those who cannot defend themselves. As your senator, I will vote for and sponsor legislation that further protects the life of unborn children, and prevents the killing of unborn children for their stem cells.
