Rape, incest, and health of the mother are reasons women terminate a pregnancy.

Women should never be forced into desperate measures in which life threatening measures such as hangers or back alley procedures are an option.
Let’s just enforce the gun laws we have.

The Clean Water and Pollution Control Act of 1972 states congress has a responsibility to reduce pollution. Better enforcement of this law would aid in reducing emissions which lead to: coral reef bleaching, melting glaciers, rising sea levels, acid rain, acidic sea water, & severe heat waves.

Children with seizure disorders who have had 300 seizures a week & only spoke one word are seizure free & speak sentences after being treated with cannabis oil. This compelling evidence inspired Governor Deal to sign HB 1, 2015 into law which provides hope to people suffering from 8 different diseases in Georgia. The law is limited in it’s assistance due to the fact that federal law makes it illegal to transport across state lines. More research is also needed to better understand the possible medicinal uses for the herb. Alas, cannabis is a schedule I drug which prohibits research.

Affordable Care Act 2010
Angela can improve the situation with high deductibles & high premiums insurance carriers place through compelling states to participate in Medicare & Medicaid expansion to assist the elderly & poor as federal funding has been set aside for this purpose. Closings of Rural area hospitals will no longer be a reality as they will not absorb costs associated with nonpayment for services. This expansion will also provide a safety net for insurance companies who participate in the marketplace. Overall, quality of life will improve.
