Abortion ends a human life and life should be cherished. Any means that protects human life and helps reduce the impacts to mothers needs to be put in place and enforced. Government should not fund any organization that provides abortion services. Family planning options, like adoption, need to be promoted and encouraged.
Laws are meant to be followed. Our nation needs to be welcoming to legal immigrants that are vetted and follow our laws. Illegal immigration needs to be part of our history, and not our future. Any measure that helps secure our borders to stop those who break our laws needs to be enacted. The fact that a person is not a legal resident should exclude them from any government program.
Massive administration buildings and staff are drawing money away from our students. Our public schools need to return to a student focus and stop sending massive amounts of money to lobbyist in Austin. This can only happen by creating a competitive environment where public and private schools work to create the best education system. A voucher system will create this free market system and allow religious educational freedom to every Texan regardless of their income.
