From the Arizona Capitol Report's Voter Guide (Stringer's response to the "pro-life/pro-choice" question):
I was born and raised in the Catholic faith. I accept the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church on the issue of abortion. That is my personal view. However, I understand the Supreme Court has interpreted the Constitution to allow abortion during the early stages of pregnancy. I am not prepared to use the police power of the state to deny a women's right to choose under Roe v Wade and its progeny. I am not prepared to force my personal and religious views on others.
This response from Stringer is a far cry from his Center for Arizona Policy survey response, where he told Cathi Herrod that he supported "Prohibiting abortion except wen it is necessary to prevent the death of the mother."
And his CAP survey response is turning out to be the exception, rather than the norm. Stringer has been trying to hold back his true beliefs on certain issues, but he can't help himself when trying to kiss the rings of certain power players in the state.
Stringer's response in the Arizona Capitol Report should put the fear of God into pro-life and pro-religious freedom advocates in Arizona, who already face an ever-increasing uphill battle to defend laws on the books and to pass new legislation for their interests. Stringer might be a decent fiscal conservative, but he will most likely be a vote against life and religious freedom when push comes to shove at the legislature - his statements leave no doubt on that front.
David Stringer won't protect the most innocent among us if he is elected to the Arizona House of Representatives. He doesn't deserve the votes and support from conservatives in LD 1.
