Pro-Life and Family Issues
Life begins at conception, and we must do all we can to protect it from that moment on.
A majority of Americans are pro-life, yet the Supreme Court has declared abortion a fundamental right, and our government subsidizes abortion providers like Planned Parenthood to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. I will do all I can in Congress to make the case for life, roll back Roe v. Wade, and stop taxpayer funding of abortions.
I oppose any attempt to redefine marriage as something else other than one man and one woman. Following the Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage, we need federal legislation protecting religious liberty and conscience rights. It is wrong that businesses and charities are being shut down because they do not subscribe to an incorrect view of marriage.
We must stand up for civil society in all its forms. Strong families, churches, civic organizations, and other voluntary associations are the keys to a thriving society and a bulwark against ever-encroaching government. They must be supported.

A congressman from Ohio is set to introduce legislation that would consolidate 92 federal welfare programs into roughly a dozen, affecting about $1 trillion in government payouts and related administrative costs.
Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Ohio), the Republican who replaced former House Speaker John Boehner in Ohio’s 8th District, said there is no need for so many welfare programs and so much duplication in welfare administration.
