Texas SD-2 Republican Candidates – How They Compare on Key Issues
Right to Life: a plank of the Texas GOP 2016 Platform [Item no. 88]
All innocent human life must be respected and safeguarded from fertilization to natural death; therefore, the unborn, the aged, and the physically or mentally challenged have a fundamental individual right to life, which cannot be infringed.
Parental Rights: a plank of the Texas GOP 2016 Platform [Item no. 101]
Parental Rights and Responsibilities- Local, state, or federal laws, regulations, or policies that limit parental rights in the rearing of both biological and adopted children shall not be enacted. Parents have the God-given right and responsibility to direct and guide their children’s moral education.
School Choice: a plank of the Texas GOP 2016 Platform [Item no. 147]
We believe that all children should have access to quality education. We support the right to choose public, private, charter, or home education. We support the distribution of educational funds in a manner that they follow the student to any school, whether public, private, charter, or home school by means of tax exemptions and/or credits.
With respect to these three key issues, Cindy Burkett consistently opposed the GOP platform and aligned herself with House Speaker Joe Straus.
Texas Right to Life PAC reports Cindy Burkett as down to 72.58% pro-life in 2017. Rounding up, how can a lawmaker be 73% pro-life? Can a woman be 73% pregnant?
A lawmaker is either 100% pro-life (as per the GOP state platform) or the lawmaker is not.
Senator Bob Hall consistently voted 100% in support these three key planks of our GOP platform.
In years past, I block-walked for Cindy Burkett even though I was not in her district.
In the 2018 Republican primary, I will vote to re-elect the true conservative, Bob Hall.
