How to use abortion in a sentence?

  1. Communications Mallory Quigley:

    The taking of an innocent life and the wounding of women through abortion is never essential, women need a lot of things to prosper -- education, equal treatment under the law, economic equality-- but abortion is not the thing that empowers women.

  2. David Daleiden:

    In the twisted world of baby parts trafficking from Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, there are few unbroken rules, after the serious admissions in Planned Parenthood's letter to Congress last week, it is imperative for lawmakers and law enforcement to act decisively to determine the full extent of Planned Parenthood and their proxies' lawbreaking, hold them accountable, and stop the taxpayer funding of these barbaric atrocities against humanity.

  3. Leah Askarinam:

    Gubernatorial candidates can campaign on issues that are state-specific like the states budget and education funding -- and they can cross party lines without facing the same kind of political pressure as The GOP candidates who have to work with a national legislature, weve seen candidates like John Bel Edwards support state policies that limit abortion access, for example, which is a much more difficult stance to take as a Democrat in The GOP.

  4. Ilya Shapiro:

    They are freaking out because they don’t understand, those top areas, abortion or gay rights or Citizens United, there’s really not going to be a change.

  5. Anthea Butler:

    They are in many ways like conservative evangelicals, no same-sex marriage and no abortion, it's a 19th-century religion that comes out of a space where health and holiness was important. But they have this leader who is a woman, Ellen G. White, and they veer off of traditional mainline Christianity.
