I believe that all life is precious, including that of unborn children. I also know that people hold a variety of views about abortion in good faith, and that this debate will endure for the foreseeable future. I am determined to find solutions that accommodate the greatest freedom for the greatest number of people. To that end, I want to stop the endless fighting around abortion and bring everyone to the table and work out reasonable practical solutions. I recognize that imposing legal restrictions will not stop people who have a different worldview. I believe the best approach is to work together to identify and eliminate the underlying contributing causes, such as financial issues, lack of stable family structure, etc., that encourage women and their families to choose abortion. I hope to help women, their partners and their families find a better quality of life for themselves, their loved ones and their unborn children.
