In a recent Politico article, my opponent staked her flag in the ground naming unrestricted abortions her number one priority - not inflation, not education, not public safety - abortion on demand at any time is issue #1 for her.
I, on the other hand, agree with most North Carolinians who believe we need less abortions, not more. I believe we need legislation which puts reasonable restrictions on abortion with the appropriate exceptions for rape, incest, and to save the mother's life. I also believe that we should protect babies and moms - before, during, and after childbirth. My opponent called these views extremist.
Mary Wills Bode's message is clear: if you disagree with her, you're an extremist.
This November, District 18 faces a choice between a divisive, far-left insider, or a compassionate, conservative, political outsider. She thinks it is a political photo opportunity to stand with the Governor when he is signing pro-abortion executive orders. The same Governor who vetoed legislation that would give life saving care to infants born alive after surviving a botched abortion is raising money for her to attack my biblical view of life.
Her refusal to intervene on a child's behalf at any point in a pregnancy is a sharp contrast to my position - I'm a conservative with a passion for life with a long history of working to help mothers and their children.
The choice is clear.
