Abortion - McKenna is against abortion, except in the case of rape and incest, and when the life of the mother is endangered. He has reportedly financially contributed to a Chicago pregnancy crisis center.

Education - "I favor local control in education," said McKenna, "because Washington does not always know best."

Gun Control - His reported position on gun rights is that he would close the gun show loophole, but that the emphasis should be on enforcing laws already in place.

School Choice / Vouchers - "I favor a federal Education Tax Credit to help parents defray the costs of educating their children, whether in a public school, an independent school, or a home school program," he said. "Such a tax credit will put more power in the hands of parents. "
