The Reform Party as a national organization believes that social issues or values issues: i.e. abortion, gay marriage, and end of life decisions; should not be our focus as a party. These issues are too embroiled on personal morality and religious beliefs, and no party can claim to have the absolute moral authority to force its views and values on everyone else. Reform Party members and candidates may believe one way or another and the party leaves that choice to the individual.
As a party, our focus will always be on issues such as the economy, government fiscal accountability, trade, national security, and jobs. As an organization, we expect our state parties, and our candidates, to make the party’s positions on platform issues their primary focus while such social issues remain as an incidental portion of candidacy.
The Reform Party does not, and will not, have stances on Social or Values Issues in our National Platform.
