Regent Jim Pillen (Republican)

Jim Pillen:

Jim Pillen:

Yes

I believe life is a precious gift of God's grace, beginning at conception and continuing through natural death. As governor, I will do all I can to outlaw the murder of unborn babies in our state and protect the dignity of human life. I support every effort, legislative and judicial, to outlaw abortion and prohibit any public funding of organizations that perform abortions and/or counsel or refer people to abortion providers. Nebraska is a pro-life state, and I will work to affirm and strengthen our culture of life every single day.

Jim Pillen:

Yes

I believe that parents, not government, make the best decisions regarding their children's education. Government should empower parents and allow them to spend their tax dollars on the school of their choice whether it be public, private, charter, or homeschooling. Additionally, parents have the right to know what schools are teaching their children. We should require schools to post their learning materials online.

Jim Pillen:

Yes

The freedom to worship God and follow one's conscience is our most fundamental right as Americans. I'll oppose any effort to limit freedom of conscience or persecute Nebraskans for their beliefs. That includes so-called "Fairness Ordinances," the "Equality Act," and other efforts to limit the freedoms of those with Biblical views of life, gender, and marriage. These awful proposals have no place in our state. The State of Nebraska should provide our nation's strongest conscience protections for all citizens, including healthcare providers. Government should not be able to require any Nebraskan to participate in, or make referrals for, services and medical procedures, including abortion, that violate their religious beliefs.

Jim Pillen:

Yes

Nebraska is the worst state in the nation for school choice. My administration will work to change that and allow children to be in schools that fit their needs.

Jim Pillen:

Yes

There's no place for men in women's sports, women's bathrooms, and women's changing rooms. There's no excuse for subjecting minors to treatments that mutilate their bodies and harm healthy growth and development. I'll oppose the radical transgender agenda at every turn.

Jim Pillen:

No

Gross, inappropriate sex education standards, whether they go by "health standards" or another name, have no place in Nebraska. Parents, not the government, should be teaching children these sensitive topics. We need a bill to ban the teaching of sex education in public schools to keep liberal activists from grooming our children and hijacking their impressionable minds.
