Uh.. not for but pro-choice. Your body, your choice.

Drinking age
For, it's fine the way it is but I would be on board with lowering it.

Political stance
Pretty liberal, occasionally libertarian.

Selective Service
Against, volunteer only please.

Gay marriage

Universal pre-k

Sex education

As long as the parents are educated- I don't care. We personally did delayed vax.

Sin Tax

Legalization of marijuana

Universal Health care

"Performance pay" for teachers


Against in most cases.

Methods of birth control

Whatever works for each family as long as they've educated themselves on whatever they choose. I'm okay with every type of BC I've heard of, except using abortion as a form of BC.

How many kids people should have
None of my business as long as they can support them. I agree with Kes.

Vegetarian/eating meat
We eat meat, but I don't care what you do.

Gun control
For, but it's the fine the way it is now. Nothing more than that.

Death penalty

Research it and do what you think is best. We have a girl so it hasn't been discussed too much in my house but if we have a boy, he won't be circumsized.

Fertility treatments/Assisted reproduction

Assisted suicide
For, with strict guidelines in place

Illegal Immigrants *not immigration POLICY
I understand why people want to come here for a better life. I wish it were easier to become a citizen... I don't really know what my political position is on it.

Gender Selection
Generally against, but I've heard of cases where certain diseases are hereditary to females or males only so I could understand in those cases.

Fat Tax

Shopping Carts
Um, I'm for putting them away. It's not that hard.

Kids drinking soda/eating candy/pop-tarts for breakfast

Generally against, but once in a while is okay for us.

Peanut Butter bans in schools for nut allergies

For if a child has anaphylaxis reactions, otherwise I think other precautions can be made without banning it.


Government involvement in citizens lives
I don't understand this. I like minimal involvement from the government in my personal life. ???

Seat Belt law/ laws to protect citizens from themselves
Against with adults, for with children.

Unassisted Childbirthing
For as long as they are educated about it.

Plastic Surgery
Whatever floats your boat, so for.

Chili (with or without beans)
For, with beans. It's the only way.


Dress codes for school/office
Not for offices... I'm undecided about schools.

Elective C-sections/elective repeat C-Sections
Generally against but it's your choice.

Introducing solids
For, but not before 4 months unless medically necessary.

Car Seats
Uhhh for? I'm a huge fan of extended rear facing and using a 5 point harness for as long as possible. A 2 year old in a booster seat is not cool in my book.

Generally against. Definitely not for us. Do what works for your family!

Children and Pets
Sure, as long as the parents agree to primarily care for the animals and they are always supervised when together.

Nursing in Public
FOR! (If you are comfy with it)

Cry it Out
Against for newborns & small infants.

Television and Infants/Toddlers
For within moderation.

Caring for your elderly parents
If necessary, for. I would rather go to a reputable nursing home when I get old. As long as they have wine.

For if they are certified as acquired humanely.

In-N-Out Burger
I don't remember, it's been years since I've eaten there.

Reborn dolls
Um, for? I wouldn't get one, but if someone else wants one more power to them.

Homosexual orientation/relationships
For. Be with who you love.


Scary movies
Pre-kid? For. Now? Against.

Transcultural adoption

Drug testing welfare recipients

"Luxuries" on welfare- vacation, designer accessories, upscale phones, TV w/cable, etc
I don't know.

Organized religions
Against for my family. Do what you want with yours.

Mandatory breastfeeding attempts/prescriptions for formula

Family beds
Whatever works for your family, but it wouldn't work in ours.

TTC on assistance

Infants/toddlers in bikini style swim suits

Leash backpacks for kids

Beauty pageants

Toddlers and tiaras? Hell no. I have seen/heard of some very tasteful pageants that incorporate talents and education more than appearances. I'm for those.

TV watching for kids under age 2
For in moderation.
