District 127 John Lehr He graduated from the Art Institute of Houston in 2010. He studied culinary arts at the Art Institute in Las Vegas and Houston. He has an extensive platform on his website. This is part of it. I believe government shouldn't be making decisions about women's healthcare. Healthcare decisions should be made by the individuals receiving care, in consultation with their healthcare providers. To support this principle, it's important to advocate for policies that protect and promote patients' rights to make their own healthcare decisions, without interference from the government or other third parties.
