I am the only candidate as of today that is a member of Right to Life. I point this out here hoping some of the other candidates will see this and it will nudge them to join the fight. I belong to the St. Joseph County Right to Life. Us Right to life members were able to get enough petitions for a dismemberment ban on the ballot. This procedure is so hideous I will restrain from going into detail. I hope our House and Senate will vote to make this cruel procedure illegal.
I will fight to shift Title X funding away from Planned Parenthood to pregnancy prevention and family planning services. Abortion providers should not be first in line for family planning funding. Title X funding is money from the federal government for family planning services to be distributed as each state sees fit. I want our state law to disburse the money to health clinics and county health departments that do not provide abortions.
