The logic in Wilson’s quote as it relates to women’s suffrage is if democracy is the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government than why do women not allow to vote because they too submit to authority as men do. She used that logical reasoning to convince Congress and her audience. Throughout the speech, it is believed that Catt uses a thoughtful but defensive
He responded, “You mean it’s not politically correct, and yet everyone uses it? You know what? Give me a better term.” On the flip side, when another Republican candidate, Marco Rubio, was asked about Bush and Trump’s use of the phrase he responded, “… those are human beings.” Even though he does not use the phrase anchor baby and is not ready to repeal the amendment completely, he too is adamant that there is a problem with the law concerning this issue. Democrat, Hillary Clinton, certainly is not missing out on the controversy that is taking place with this issue at hand. She tweeted out in response to Jeb Bush asking for a better term with, “How about "babies," "children," or ‘American

Burwell, Obamacare, and Obergefell v. Hodges, same-sex marriage. In King v. Burwell, Sotomayor was recognized as an influential voice, having opposed the arguments that opposed the law. In Obergefell v. Hodges, Sotomayor joined the other justices in passing the same-sex marriage act nationally. I believe because of Sotomayor’s background, being a minority and growing up in Bronx New York, has made her to be a voice for those who are afraid to be heard. America is a melting pot of many cultures and nationalities, our government should reflect the
Lastly, the word choice and imagery in Hillary Clinton’s speech at the end convinces the audience that Hillary Clinton is the best choice for President. By stating that “we need to make sure that they can be proud of us”, Clinton introduces a sense of accountability and duty to the audience, going against the notion that one person’s vote does not matter. Also, the use of the pronoun “we” makes it seem like Clinton shares a common interest with the rest of America and thus is a figure that can be trusted. In order to convince the audience that Clinton is a patriot and has the support of many Americans, the speech is shown as taking place in front of a large, cheering crowd of people with American flags. The combined effect of this word choice and imagery is that Clinton is portrayed as a down-to-earth patriot who cares deeply about the future of the country.
In recent years, the debate between “pro-choice” and “pro-life” has become a well-known topic of discussion filled with heat and passion; nevertheless, the question of whether one should consider themselves pro-choice or pro-life should only be asked after one has done their research and knows the true definition of each term. The Oxford Dictionary defines pro-choice as “advocating legalized abortion” and defines pro-life as “opposing legalized abortion”; however, it seems people are unaware of these definitions. The slogan of the pro-life cause as showcased on ProLife.com is, “Helping moms, saving babies, ending abortion!” While this does address their thoughts on abortion it adds two more
For example Reagan wanted to reverse Roe v Wade and needed more judges on board to help accomplish his goal. Reagan appointed O’Connor because of her moderately conservative views and views towards abortions. During the call to reverse Roe v Wade, O’Connor provided the vote needed to uphold the Court’s earlier decision. Of the four Supreme Court nominations made by the president, three were confirmed by the president while the other was rejected by
Initiative, a four-point plan for increasing life-affirming support, eliminating taxpayer funding for abortion providers, and ending abortions in the state. The governor said the rules are needed to demonstrate their respect for the sanctity of life. In a statement to Life News, Texas Right to Life legislative director John Seago applauded the new rules, saying they are a small step toward protection of the unborn from abortion. The group is also urging state lawmakers to do something to protect unborn babies from the gruesome second-trimester abortion procedure called dismemberment abortion. Seago said the success of a pro-life movement is measured by the number of lives saved and not by the number of rules
Hope shines light through hard decisions, politics, tragedy and everyday life. Hope is instilled in several different ways, such as in politics. During President Trump’s inaugural address he takes many opportunities to instill hope in the American people. He does this by promising a bright future for Americans not only in the lower class but in the diminishing middle class as well. In Trump’s address, he states, “America will start winning again, winning like never before.
MLK’s message being about peace, unity, fairness and freedom for and to all people shines through in this speech. The effects of MLK’s dreams are still relevant today in America, as well as his hope and vision for the United States and its citizens. “And that is something that I must say to my
Good politicians will tell you they do not lead on issues. They simply find out where everyone else is headed and then get out front. Enter presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. Reversing his position from the 2008 presidential campaign, Huckabee now says that he is open to medical marijuana and that states should be permitted to legalize recreational adult use marijuana without interference from federal authorities. As a Baptist minister Huckabee personally opposes legalization but as a presidential candidate his is getting out in front of the issue.
Johnson also believes we should do the illegal and unimaginable, that the fifty five million illegal Americans in the country right now should be able to easily get a work visa and start paying taxes and living as a citizen but not making them a citizen. Johnson is also pro-choice. He believes planned parenthood does a lot of good for women 's health and it should stay that way. He also states he’d rather give the choice to the states. And will support and fund planned parenthood, except for abortion.
