Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Should California amend its Constitution to remove current limitations and codify abortion until birth as a constitutional right? (e.g., Prop 1, 2022) - Note: Candidate Website: "Chris is a vocal champion for reproductive right and will stand up for access to safe, legal abortions. As the end of Roe v Wade seems imminent, state legislatures become the frontlines for the battle for women's health. Chris knows that everyone must have access to a full array of reproductive health care services and he'll stand up to extremist efforts to restrict health choices. That's why he's endorsed by Planned Parenthood and reproductive justice advocates."

2. Should California require medical providers to undergo “cultural competency courses” on racial politics and sexual and gender identity to have their license renewed by the state? (e.g., AB 2194, 2022) -
3. Should California adult citizens be required to pass a background check before buying ammunition? - Note: Candidate Website: Chris has been a vocal advocate for gun violence prevention and stronger, common sense gun laws to make our kids and communities safer. In the Assembly, he will work to pass common-sense gun safety and gun violence prevention legislation like stronger background checks, protecting victims of domestic violence, prohibiting “ghost guns” and stronger safe storage policies. He will also work to keep guns out of our schools and hold gun manufacturers accountable. That's how he earned the distinction as a 2022 Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate.
