Pamplin: Yes. We must protect the environment and maintain jobs even if the government has to retrain and relocate workers.
Wilken: Yes. Potentially, the most serious of all environmental problems, ozone depletion threatens important food chains and all species sensitive to ultraviolet light.
Q. \o7 Do you support giving government vouchers to low- and middle-income parents to allow them to pay their children's tuition in private or parochial schools?\f7
Q. \o7 Do you support capital punishment for any crimes? If so, what?\f7
Christensen: Yes. Ideologically, I am opposed. However, it is difficult to justify supporting the lives of some killers.
Gilmartin: Yes. Assassination of any government official, police officer, or peace officer of any type and first-degree murder of any private citizen. I also believe that terrorism should be defined as a capital crime.
McKeon: Yes. For the crimes presently under the law, and for habitually violent criminals.
Pamplin: No. As long as the courts make mistakes, I cannot condone the murder of innocent people.
Wilken: No. Someone must end the cycle of violence.
Q.\o7 In general, do you think affirmative action in employment of women and members of minority groups has not gone far enough, or has gone too far, or is about right?\f7 Christensen: Affirmative action ultimately hurts everyone because it is based on the unethical principle of judging according to sex or race. It is also insulting in its implication that women and minorities cannot succeed by their own merit.
Gilmartin: About right.
Lawrence: In many areas, not far enough.
McKeon: Far enough. People should be judged on their skills and abilities and not the color of their skin.
Pamplin: I oppose all quotas and all forms of discrimination.
Wilken: It must continue. One only need observe the number of aged white males in government to deduce that power is far from being equally distributed.
Q.\o7 Do you support a woman's unrestricted right to an abortion within the first three months of pregnancy?\f7 Christensen: Yes.
McKeon: No. Only in cases of rape, incest or endangered life of the mother.
