We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are LIFE, LIBERTY, and the pursuit of Happiness
~ The Declaration of Independence ~
I am and always have been pro-life.
As a high schooler I was convinced of the pro-life position by Jesse Jackson and Al Gore before they later sold out their beliefs for PAC contributions from Planned Parenthood. Unlike most Republicans and Democrats however, I will never sell out on this issue.
Life begins at conception, so protection under the law must begin there as well. Our Declaration of Independence states that every individual has rights to “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” – and life is rightly foremost among our inalienable rights.
Indeed, two of our Libertarian mottos are “Don’t tread on anyone” and “Do no harm,” and I intend to uphold these values as your Senator in Washington, D.C.
