How to use protection in a sentence?

  1. Nancy Pelosi:

    All Americans should be deeply concerned about the White House’s cynical decision to flout the law and attempt to put the ringleader of its dangerous, anti-consumer protection policies in charge of the CFPB, democrats will be firm in defending the rightful appointment of Leandra English as acting director.

  2. Phyllis McGinley:

    Who could deny that privacy is a jewel? It has always been the mark of privilege, the distinguishing feature of a truly urbane culture. Out of the cave, the tribal teepee, the pueblo, the community fortress, man emerged to build himself a house of his own with a shelter in it for himself and his diversions. Every age has seen it so. The poor might have to huddle together in cities for need's sake, and the frontiersman cling to his neighbors for the sake of protection. But in each civilization, as it advanced, those who could afford it chose the luxury of a withdrawing-place.

  3. Leonardo DaVinci:

    Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.

  4. William Schaffner:

    We think antibodies correlate with protection, but we don't really know that yet.

  5. Ken Kimmell:

    There is no way to sugarcoat this, President Trump has taken a wrecking ball to environmental protection in the US, frankly I didn't think this would happen with the severity with this is happening. We have had changes in powers before. Different presidents strike a different balance. But this is a severe attack that we didn't expect.
