Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Should the state prohibit abortion when it is sought because of a prenatal diagnosis of possible Down syndrome? N* All women have the right to make choices about their bodies, yet women are denied this right especially with today's circumstances of COVID.
2. Should marijuana be legalized for recreational use? Y* PA desperately needs added revenues away from toxin-producing industries. Hemp would also add revenues for infrastructure and education for our kids.
3. Should Pennsylvania raise the minimum wage? Y* 30% of our young working families of 4 are living below the poverty level due to taxing, childcare, and inflation. It shouldn't be this hard.
4. Should parents be eligible for direct grants for their children to attend the school of their choice, including non-public schools? N* Our public schools are endangered now. We have to protect the funding that is educating our children.
5. Should wedding service providers be required to participate in a same-sex wedding that they object to on religious grounds? Y* Equality for Pennsylvanians. Love is love and a constitutional right to marry of your choice.
6. Should organizations, such as Planned Parenthood, that provide abortions be prohibited from receiving state funds? N* Both women and men utilize these services for preventative care as well as a way of birth control and many of these people have no health insurance.
7. Should schools and other public institutions collect direct payroll deductions for union dues? Y* All employees have the right to unionize with payroll deductions.
8. Should Pennsylvania public schools and other public facilities be required to open up restrooms and locker rooms regardless of biological sex? U* Because of a child's growth and development, I honestly don't know how I feel on this subject.
9. Should the state stop paying for sex-change surgeries for children? U* Psychologically a child hasn't completed their growth. Children naturally curious about that opposite sex but are their fully mentally grown for this decision?
10. Should Pennsylvania withhold state funding to “Sanctuary Cities” that do not comply with federal immigration laws? N* Our nation was built by immigrants so how can we restrict funding to a city that is only providing protection to those in need.
11. Should school property taxes be eliminated? N* PA would only increase taxes somewhere else with tax monies going to the higher tax bracket school. Low-income families would suffer.
