Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Expanding background checks to include guns purchased from private individuals. S* It cost 2.9B direct cost in gun violence, AZ alone. If you own a gun, we have the right to know who you are.
2. Adding “sexual orientation,” “gender identity,” or “gender expression” to the protected classes of race, religion, age, sex, and ancestry in nondiscrimination law. S* Transgender people are the gender that they say they are and I will show all people with the human dignity they deserve including gender/diverse people.
3. Prohibiting abortion except when it is necessary to prevent the death of the mother. O* Big government does not have the right to inject themselves into a woman's body and tell us what to do.

5. Providing state funding or referrals to abortion entities that perform or refer for abortion. S* Currently, 17% are paid by medicaid. Rest by insurance or out of pocket. This allows the poor equal access to pro-choice.

8. Legalizing physician-assisted suicide. S* I support legalized physician-assisted, not suicide.
9. Protecting a parent's right to seek professional counseling for their minor child with same-sex attraction or gender identity issues to help them reach their desired outcome. O* These professional counseling are scams. Mostly run by their church with religious bias instead of with a child psychiatrist.

11. Protecting individuals and businesses from being required to provide services or use their artistic expression in a manner that violates their moral or religious beliefs. -* An individual/businesses can not refuse service base on sexual orientation. Therefore I oppose individual/businesses that discriminate against the LGBTQ community.
