Family Rights

We reject surrogacy contract legislation because it commercializes children and devalues the role of a mother in a child’s life. Legislation must be adopted to protect religious institutions from being required to recognize/perform marriages that are not within their traditional definition of marriage.  We do not support legislation that seeks to expand the Human Rights Law to include “transgender” as a protected class. Mandated vaccinations should be limited to those illnesses that are easily communicable and potentially life treating; all other vaccines shall only be done with parental consent.
