Every politician throughout the South will check the box of being Pro-Life but it should not be a box we just check. I believe life starts at conception, no apologies and no middle ground, it’s a scientific fact. I am proud of my 100% voting record throughout my 7 years within the SC House and my sponsorship of countless pro-file bills, along with my drafting of the Personhood Act. However, as a Christian I believe it’s vitally important to protect life in all areas. Over the last serval years, I have lead the way within the House on Foster Care reform. We must understand that our responsibility as Christians is to protect life from conception throughout the natural end of life. We have many areas that deserve our attention as a society regarding the protection of life, like foster care, sex trafficking, and the elderly just to name a few. If we as a nation cannot value life than we will never be able to lead on any other issue. I am proud to not just check a box but to fight for the one’s without a voice. We need more leaders who understand how important the sanctity of life is, as the corner stone of our morality as a nation. Without it all else fails over time.
