Bushey for Maine House #151

 

Kevin is running because Aroostook County has been forgotten by Augusta and the current business models that democrats have instituted that are slowly killing this County must change. The County has access to the largest natural resource in the state, our forest products industry, and the state still lags behind the world in smartly using and bringing this industry into the 21st Century as well as exploring its usage for energy and soils management.


I support President Trump’s Pro-life efforts to end abortion in America.  Please read this information that was recently sent to me by Alex Ouellette, White House Advisor to the President, and formally a resident of Mapleton:

Recently, President Trump announced the release of two reports which further demonstrate his commitment to protecting the sanctity of life. Since his first day in office, President Trump has taken historic action to protect the sanctity of every American life and became the first sitting President to address the annual March for Life rally. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Independent Ethics Advisory Board released a report on its thorough review of 14 external research proposals involving the use of fetal tissue. HHS continues to follow through on its efforts to end federal research using fetal tissue from abortions. Additionally, the Department of State released a report on the President’s “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance Policy,” which ensures taxpayers do not fund abortions globally.

Reverence for every human life, one of the values for which our Founding Fathers fought, defines the Character of Our Nation. This has moved President Trump to continue to stand with pro-life Americans as their champion. As such, The Trump Administration remains steadfast in their dedication to preserving the precious gift of life and defending religious liberty.

COMMITTED TO PROTECTING LIFE: President Donald J. Trump has shown his steadfast commitment to preserving the precious gift of life and defending religious liberty.

·         Today, the Department of Health and Human Services is announcing a proposal to revise its conscience regulations to protect President Trump’s promise to enforce Federal conscience and religious freedom protections. The proposed conscience provisions include:

·         Restricting taxpayer funds, including Medicare, Medicaid, and Obamacare, from being used by entities with discriminatory policies or practices,

·         Protecting Americans who have religious or moral convictions related to certain health care services,

·         Recognizing that Americans should not be discriminated against for their religious or moral beliefs when participating in certain health services.

·         President Trump cut off taxpayer funding for the U.N. Population Fund, which colludes with China’s cruel program of forced abortion and sterilization.

·         President Trump signed H.J. Res. 43 into law, overturning a midnight regulation by the Obama Administration, which prohibited States from defunding certain abortion facilities in their federally-funded family planning programs.

·         President Trump has expressed strong support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would stop late-term abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, when science tells us that an unborn child can experience pain.

·         President Trump’s Department of Health and Human Services just announced the formation of a new Conscience and Religious Freedom Division, tasked with ensuring that laws that protect religious freedom and conscience rights are appropriately enforced.
