Legality of Abortion - Roe v. Wade

The current law allows for women to make choices about their reproductive health with their doctors. I do not believe that changing this law is the first thing we must do to get our State and our country back on track, should the majority of citizens and the representatives you elect have an urgent need to do so, I trust that will happen because in a democracy it is the will of the people that should rule. The reason I’m running for U.S. Senate is to help turn the economy around.

Stem Cell Research, a General Statement

I do not oppose potentially lifesaving research technologies, but at this time of national economic crisis, I’m not sure I can support an expansion of funding. I think we should look for ways to encourage the private sector to step in and support this work.

Source: Sobhani (10/19/2012)

Support quality research for health care to benefit general public, not a few; not be used as false excuse to siphon resources (financial, properties, land, facilities, personnel, etc.) to benefit a few. Eliminate unjust deprivation of resources (public, private) by various unlawful, unethical, immoral acts, frauds, crimes; unjust manipulation, influence: improper records, bookkeeping as often by "fraud- crime- injustice networks".
