|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)||O||Note: Planned Parenthood Survey Question: Do you support the ability of teenagers under the age of 16 to confidentially access safe and legal abortion? Answer: "Yes. I believe that teenagers need confidential counseling and available medical care that is not scrutinized."
|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)||U||Note: Planned Parenthood Survey Question: Do you support expansive and comprehensive sex education curriculum in public schools that is inclusive of LGBTQ+ sexual experiences and identities? Answer: "Yes. Again, would need to see the actual proposed legislation. At what age would this curriculum be introduced? Mostly my concern."
|3. Delaware law should protect fairness and the integrity of women’s sports. (HB 199, 2021; SB 227, 2022)||-|
|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)||O||Note: Planned Parenthood Survey Question: Legislation is often proposed that would impose restrictions on both people seeking abortions and providers. The restrictions (often called targeted restrictions on abortion providers or TRAP laws) single out providers, facilities, and drugs related to abortion services and may include provisions such as mandated waiting periods, redundant levels of accreditation, and expensive and unnecessary equipment. Do you support these restrictions on abortion access? Answer: "No. Religious zealots that do nothing for the born have no business legislating against persons or providers."
|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).||O||Note: "And today the far right is busily rewriting history while simultaneously attempting to disfranchise voters, roll back civil rights, and create a literal “womb to birth” police state."
|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)||O||Note: Endorsed by NonPartisanDE. "Protection of medical/reproductive privacy and rights."
|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).||-|
|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)||U||Note: Endorsed by NonPartisanDE. "Stop layering new gun restrictions on top of the existing ones criminals already flaunt..."

|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)||-|
