Thank you for the opportunity to clarify my position. Please know that I am 100% Pro-Life on the stance of abortion, with the only exception being the risk of the mother’s life. All human life is precious and valuable to me, from conception to natural death. I however am not properly informed at this time as to the end of life care laws that exist in Oregon, or other similar states, which was the matter on the questionnaire that I was not able to provide a simple Yes or No. I believe that any legislation regarding this topic needs to be carefully considered as to avoid unintended consequences and cannot be answered in a Yes/No format. Furthermore, I do not believe in Doctor Assisted Suicide, and in my many years of volunteering for Senior Citizens I believe that we need to foster a greater capacity to care for them as those needs are not currently being properly met.
