Republican Brad Sherman is running for Iowa House District 91 against Democrat Elle Wyant.

Here is Iowa House District 91:

  1. At what point of pregnancy should abortion no longer be an option? Life begins at conception, and since abortion is never considered except by those who know they are pregnant, abortion should not be an options at any stage of pregnancy. Only when it is clearly needed to save the life of the mother is it an option to consider.
  2. Do you support allowing eminent domain to be used for a private, for-profit project? No.
  3. Do you support Education Savings Accounts for Iowa families? Yes
  4. Do you support legislation removing sexually explicit, pornographic materials from school libraries? Yes
  5. Do you support a bill requiring schools to communicate “preferred pronouns” of students to the their parents? If students bring this up, yes, it should be mandatory to report it to parents. The real question is: “Why did it come up in the first place?” Teachers should not bring this up at all and should be prohibited by law from doing so.
  6. Would you support removing gender identity from the Iowa Civil Rights Code? If I understand the question, yes. I support the ideas that all humans are created equal and have certain unalienable rights given by God. We do not need to give special rights to people based on gender, sexual preference, race, etc. When we create a special group, by default we also create a group that is less special. This a root cause of division and civil unrest.
  7. Would you support a bill banning “gender-affirming treatment” of minors in Iowa? Yes
  8. Would you support a bill allowing one legislative candidate to donate some of their campaign funds to another legislative candidate directly, which was outlawed in the 1990s? Yes
  9. Do you support reforming the Governor’s Emergency Powers in Iowa? Yes
  10. Do you support reforming and/or repealing Iowa’s “Certificate of Need” laws? Yes
  11. Do you support a Religious Freedom & Restoration Act for Iowans? I will need to study any proposed language on this issue, but I believe the interpretation of the First Amendment that takes prayer and the Bible out of public institutions is a wrong interpretation. We need God, the Bible, and prayer back in schools and public life. The “wall of separation” of which Jefferson spoke is a one-way wall designed to keep government out of the church, not to keep Christians and Christian principles out of government.
  12. Do you support efforts to stop Big Tech censorship in Iowa? Yes
  13. In Iowa, the penalty is the same for kidnapping and raping a minor as it is for kidnapping, raping and murdering a minor. Would you support a bill allowing for the death penalty in cases where a minor is kidnapped, raped and murdered? Yes
  14. Do you support mandatory E-Verify for Iowa businesses? No. A federal database of valid social security numbers sounds more like an information gathering and surveillance system on citizens than a means of identifying non-citizens. Businesses, especially small businesses, don’t need more red tape. There are other ways to verify if people are in the country legally. Let’s just secure the border.
  15. Do you support legislation prohibiting an employer from asking an employee for his or her COVID vaccination status? Yes
  16. Do you support legislation prohibiting discrimination based on COVID vaccination status? Yes
  17. Should minors be allowed to attend drag shows? No
  18. Do you support allowing the sale of raw milk? Yes, as long as those who purchase it know it is raw.
  19. Would you support getting rid of no-excuse absentee voting? Yes
