Life begins at the moment of conception, and we must defend the right to life. As a leader in the pro-life community, I am committed to continuing my support and defense of the sanctity of life and will continue to fight to de-fund Planned Parenthood, ban late-term abortion, and make sure individuals in the healthcare system will never be forced to take an innocent life. Every life is precious, and we must work to build a culture that respects and promotes life. I strongly oppose any federal funding of abortion and will introduce legislation to stop the flow of tax dollars to groups that perform or advocate for abortion. We will replace "Planned Parenthood" with a program that focuses on contraceptives, sex education, and adoption instead of promoting abortion.
