In January 2012 the Susan G Coleman foundation announced that they would be cutting their hand will funds to Planned Parenthood. That same week more than 100,000 people who use the hashtag to show support in restoring funding which was done.

For 2016, it was easy to see the vile themes of hypocrisy, greed and racism present on the news and in social media.

It was a terrible deal, and it really led to the destruction of the company.” Donald Trump just like other nominees criticize Carly Fiorina for a small mistake in the company when really that 's not even the case.
