Question Response Comments/Notes
1. The Delaware Constitution should be amended to protect the right of parents to the control, custody, and care of their children from government interference, which requires the government to prove that it has a strong, compelling reason to restrict that right, such as in cases of abuse and neglect. (HB 319, 2022) S* Most citizens have assumed the government is willing to help with programs to assist parents at all stages of development. While perhaps well intended, many of the programs come with a subtle but measurable cedeing of some parental/guardian rights. The school system serves as a perfect example. Out of convenience many permit their children to use the medical facilities (beyond the school nurse) in schools. Much of the care given there can be non preported or underreported, and there is support to decrease transparencey even further. Our children are our responsibility, and the medical management of their healthcare belong to the parents/guardians. Parents/guardians must be in control of what happens to their children in all aspects of their academic experience.
2. Public schools should seek to strengthen the parent-child relationship, and should not be required to implement or integrate expansive and comprehensive sex education curriculum that includes LGBTQIA+ role play, sexual practices, and identities. (HB 199, 2021) S* Education, not indoctrination is the task of the public schools. The parents/guardians must have the right to reject and remove their children from instruction deemed objectionable.
3. Delaware law should protect fairness and the integrity of women’s sports. (HB 199, 2021; SB 227, 2022) S* Men and women develop differently. We must respect the differences and permit biological men to compete against biological men, and biological women to compete against biological women.
4. Individuals and faith-based entities should have the right of conscience to freely live out their sincerely held convictions regarding human sexuality and conception, without fear of government infringement or retaliation. (HB 199, 2021) S* Perfectly stated.
5. Abortion is the act of violently ending the life of another human being. Lawmakers should work to promote the value of and protect human life from conception to natural death, versus expanding abortion access through all 9 months of pregnancy. (SR 24, 2022; HB 40, 2022; SB 235, 2022; HB 140, 2022; HB 455, 2022; SB 343, 2022; HB 460, 2022). S* Well stated. Completely agree.
6. Assisted Suicide, the act of deliberately assisting or cooperating in helping someone terminate his or her life, should not be legalized in Delaware as an end-of-life option. (HB 140, 2022) S* Who then will make the final decision on life? Do we want or need to cede that power to the government? This is a very slippery slope here, and goes to the core of individual liberty and freedom.
7. A State of Emergency declaration extended beyond 30 days should depend on the consent of the people of Delaware through the General Assembly. (HB 49, 2021; HB 247, 2021). S* It is hard to beleive we need to be reminded our form of government is not to rule by Executive Order. The power of government is derived from the public. While we can respect emergency declarations, there must be a limit placed on the number and lenght of time emergency declarations can be used.
8. The right of Delawareans to keep and bear arms, as protected by the US and DE Constitutions, should not be infringed. Better enforcement of current laws to prevent crime versus more restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety. (HB 450, 2022; SB 8, 2021) S* Unconstitutional actions must not be rewarded. My hope is the current court cases reverse the Unconistitutional laws.
9. To preserve the integrity of our elections, the legislature should strive to eliminate opportunities for fraud in the election process. (HB 15, 2022; HB 25, 2022; SB 320, 2022) S* The fact that this is an issue is sad. Voter integrity and election integrity are among the few issues separating our country from what we consider "banana republics."
