In question 2, Paton indicates that he will generously allow an abortion in cases where the woman’s life is in danger. But wait! In question 4 he agrees with allowing health care providers to opt out of any procedures that conflict with their “moral or religious beliefs”. No exceptions for your life in that.
Paton answers the rest of the survey 100% in favor of CAP positions, sensible establishment moderate Republican that he is.

Bio: I grew up in Silver Spring, MD, and an adventurous streak led me to join the Navy. I moved to Arizona in 1997 after serving 10 years in the Navy to work in semi-conductor manufacturing. I got involved in national and Arizona politics in 2003. I ran for 2006 State Senate in Ahwatukee and was a Delegate to the 2008 Democratic National Convention. I now live in North Central Phoenix with my boyfriend, Mark, and our three dogs. I've been blogging for Democratic Diva since 2007 about local and national politics with a strong emphasis on women's issues.
