Right to Life

Human life begins at fertilization. Anna's position on every aspect of Right to Life are consistent with this premise. Unborn children are protected under the United States Constitution too. By our nature as human beings, we are given certain inalienable rights by our Creator, among them life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. All babies in the womb are human beings. Abortion-on-demand is not a right guaranteed by the Constitution. No serious scholar, including one disposed to agree with the Court's result, has argued that the framers of the Constitution intended to create such a right.

Anna supports parental notification when a mother under the age of 18 seeks an abortion. Anna also supports requirements that an ultrasound be performed and viewed by the mother before any abortive procedure begins.

Anna supports federal legislation that defines "life" as beginning at the moment of fertilization. Anna opposes embryo-destroying stem cell research. Anna supports adult stem cell research and Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (IPS) research, which changes adult stem cells into embryonic-like stem cells with promising results.
