State House 68

1. Abortion: The 1973 Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court abortion decision.
Lisa Hassell (Democrat)
Support
As a Registered Nurse for the last 36 years I know that abortion will occur with or without the permission of the law . It needs to remain available and safe. I believe that women have the right to regulate their own bodies and make this personal and difficult decision on their own with the support of their family.
Stan Berry (Republican)
Oppose
2. Guns: Confiscation of firearms from citizens that the government deem a danger to themselves or others, otherwise known as red flag laws.
Lisa Hassell (Democrat)
Support
Most of the shooters involved in mass shootings were already known to have mental issues or a history of violence ,yet they continue to be allowed access to guns . This does not mean that I would ever consider taking guns from responsible hunters who have taken required training and registered their firearms.
