Fight for the rights of the unborn

Tim believes that a society is ultimately judged by how it treats its weakest and most vulnerable members. That is why he is 100% pro-life and opposes euthanasia and assisted suicide, as well as the non-consensual withholding of care because of disability, age, or infirmity. Tim will fight for the rights of the unborn, and will resist government funding for abortions.

No embryonic stem cell research

Tim supports adult and cord blood stem cell research, but he opposes the use of taxpayer dollars for research on human embryos. He supports a ban on human cloning and on creation of human embryos solely for experimentation.
