How to use fox in a sentence?

  1. Xavier Becerra:

    Information is power, and all women should have access to the information they need when making personal health care decisions, the Reproductive FACT Act ensures that women in California receive accurate information about their health care options, including whether a facility is a licensed medical provider. The California Department of Justice will do everything necessary to protect women’s health care rights. The attorney general was not immediately available for additional comment when contacted by Fox News. The Supreme Court is intervening to regulate these types of laws and provide a sense of consistency. Indeed, other courts in states like New York, Texas and Maryland have invalidated laws that were similar to The Reproductive FACT Act. But some states -- such as Hawaii and Illinois -- currently have similar laws in place, which, like in California, have also led to appeals and other lawsuits. Specifically in Hawaii, Thomas Glessner said, one of the pregnancy resource centers is located in a church.
