Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Under the approval of the child carrier if she is of age and partner. When the child carrier is under the age a 2 step process needs to be completed. 1. A signed letter from a certified counselor that she along with partner understands what abortion is and the short and long term mental effects it will have on her. 2. A signed letter from a physician explaining the risks of having an abortion to include the consent of both parents or guardian.

Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?

Very Conservative

Additional comment from candidate:

My goal is to integrate a real change into the process of politics and produce a functional honest approach to combat our current situations. By doing so my overall commitment is to the people. As I am an active duty soldier, it hurts me to my heart to see our country on the break of disaster. Our Veterans homes are a symbol of scandals throughout America. The voice of the peoples are muffled by politics and their single agenda. The power of greed has consumed the offices of our elected officials. Louisiana please do not vote because of false promises and hopes. The speeches that are presented during conferences are writing by others and not the elected official. Ask yourself what has changed since prior elected officials has taken office. Vote #63 I am you!
