Keeping religion & state separate protects both
I will be a fierce defender of the First Amendment
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. – First Amendment to the United States Constitution
I will defend your right to practice whatever religion you choose – or to practice no religion at all – and I will keep Arizona safe from laws that force someone else’s religion on you.
And just so I’m clear, I support:
- Equal protection under the law for LGBTQ individuals and equal marriage for same gender couples;
- Comprehensive reproductive education and healthcare, including a right to access safe, affordable birth control;
- A woman’s right to make decisions about her own healthcare, including the right to choose a safe, accessible, affordable abortion.
