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: "I am pro-liberty and thus prayerfully pro-choice. I believe that woman’s reproductive healthcare decisions are a private matter that deserve equal protection under the law. It is up to the private sector to offer non-coercive, meaningful alternatives. I will defend the strong safeguards provided for women’s reproductive freedom in California and will support efforts to meet the inevitable rise in demand for reproductive health services to women from outside the state."

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: ""I come from a mountain ranching family that regarded firearms as a work tool. I support sensible regulation of firearms and gun ownership, such as reasonable limits on firepower, background checks, red flag laws, and training. But not every regulation makes sense in application, so I will listen to the experiences of gun owners to identify where well-meaning regulations depart from common sense and will work for reform. I have been designated as a Gun Sense Candidate by Moms Demand Action."
