I am pro-life and strongly support the fundamental rights of the unborn. I oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, and I feel parental consent is necessary with such a procedure, at the least.
Peaceful and law-abiding Ohio citizens should have the right to carry a concealed weapon. This will lower the crime rate by giving criminals a second thought about committing acts of violence.
The right to bear arms is guaranteed by the second amendment and must be protected at the state level. We should enforce the laws already in place, and should not try to place further restrictions on gun ownership.

Ohio citizens now face one of the highest local tax burdens in the nation. We need to limit spending and cut taxes to balance Ohio's budget and help businesses grow.

I helped fight for the right of a school district to post the Ten Commandments against a lawsuit by the ACLU. I stand opposed to expanded gambling in this state, as the economic and moral problems that come with it are far too great. Marriage should be between a man and a woman, and Ohio can and should act to ensure the civil unions now available in Vermont are not recognized in Ohio because of the force of a legal challenge.
