Abortion

     I am pro-family planning, pro-choice, pro-cooling off period, pro-counseling, and pro-fetal transplant research (researching how to transplant a fetus from one mother to another). Pregnancy termination is not an easy decision under any circumstances. We should be focused on open, honest education and pregnancy prevention. I believe vasectomies should be covered 100% by the government.

     I am aggressively against legislation aimed at harassing victims or requiring victims to identify and prosecute their assaulters in order to obtain an abortion. These legislations also aim to shorten the statue of limitations and cast doubt on the assault if a victim decides not to terminate a pregnancy. While it may not always be in their best interest, I must respect a victims right to privacy, their right not to file charges, and their choice to bring an unwanted pregnancy to term if they so desire.
