  1. Why would a perfect God put life in the womb of a woman if he already knows she is going to abort it ?
    Churches have no place in secular politics.

  2. Do you know you can get rid of any kind of disease with natural root and herbs,I was able to cure my HIV completely by the help of Dr Osaba on YouTube,he is a traditional man he has cure for all kinds of chronic diseases๐Ÿ’•

  3. Aaaaaaaaaalll this money and recourses and campaigning, not to help people, but to stop ABORTIONS! Let's not help the homeless, or address our terrible crime! Let's go after abortions! Yeah, let's do that! That'll make America great again!

  4. #ABC she talks about human rights so much, I wonder her views then on BLM and prison reform? ๐Ÿค”

  5. Iโ€™m just watching the same right-wing extremism that tried to steal an election, flood the streets with guns, ruin the environment, and now they're forcing women to have children they canโ€™t raise. This woman should stop stop jamming her religious and political views down other people's throats.

  6. America was never meant to be a theocracy. Thomas Jefferson would be rolling in his grave to know Catholics were calling the shots in America. People came to America to get rid of them. We've only had 1 Catholic president before President Joe Biden, which was John F. Kennedy for a reason. Jefferson once said, "watch out for the priests." He was right. America sure wasn't founded by Catholics…

  7. I don't think so…about a day of civil rights. The same Republicans put children in cages smashing them in like sardines. They refused to allow child care credits which helped raise millions of children out of hunger and poverty. Care about the children here first then we'll talk about the unborn. Civil rights? You've got to be kidding me..they wouldn't vote for voting rights for people of color. I'll never trust them or care for them. They have done nothing but ruin our nation. They are very privileged.

  8. Roe v Wade provided a choice, it didn't mandate you get one, but now that it's repealed you no longer have that option and are obligated to do what catholic doctrine dictates.

  9. In my plea for freedom to all consciences in matters merely of worship, I have impartially pleaded for freedom of the
    consciences of the Papists themselves, the greatest enemies and persecutors in Europe of the saints and truths of Jesus;
    yet I have pleaded for no more than is their due and right. Whatever else shall be the consequence of this plea,
    it shall stand for a monument and testimony against them and be an aggravation of their former, present, and future cruelties
    against Christ Jesus the Head, and all that uprightly love Him, His true disciples and followers.

  10. There is a moral virtue, a moral fidelity, ability and honesty, which other men, besides church members, are, by good nature and education, by good laws and good examples nourished and trained up in; so that civil places and trust and credit need not be monopolized into the hands of church members (who sometimes are not fitted for public office), while all others are deprived and despoiled of their natural and civil rights and liberties.

  11. If it can't think, can't breath, can't live on it's own it's not a child it's a tumor. Get your religion out of my legal system. More people killed in the name of your god than any other reason, so the humility and humanity is BS. No states allow abortion through 9 months, that's a flat lie. Religious woman uses no facts and lies about the law, she should run for congress…

  12. You can still get abortion in the federal states forever๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Šonly in the rest south who never stop fighting the civil war ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆGOD BLESS AMERICA

  13. Americans are totally ignorant about the history of religious freedom. It was not a product of the United States at all, they bastardized religious freedom to accommodate slavery.
    The person who brought religious freedom to America also gave us freedom of speech, democracy, free human minds and soul-liberty, the last two were not wanted by the United States and they had to turn the first three inside out to accommodate slavery.

    A liberal democracy is what an American colony had in 1663. Roger Williams established it in

    the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. He brought freedom of speech, freedom of religion,

    democracy, the free human mind and soul liberty here by argument alone.

    He predicted that his opposition would, if left unchecked, replace civilization with slavery, slaughter the

    Native Americans and turn America into the very place the pilgrims escaped. That happened upon his death.

    Freedom of religion was returned to religious privilege, the slave trade and piracy became the bread and butter

    of his attempt at civilization. When the United States was formed, they undid every single aspect of civilization

    and called it by the same names used by Roger Williams. They gave credit to slave owners for forming a free society.

    When they claimed to end slavery, all they did was shuffle the deck. They took away the rights of private individuals

    to shackle and contain other humans and gave that and every other practice and procedure of slavery to the government

    and the corporations who founded it. It all went into the melting pot and that has how we have been governed ever since.

    In my plea for freedom to all consciences in matters merely of worship, I have impartially pleaded for freedom of the

    consciences of the Papists themselves, the greatest enemies and persecutors in Europe of the saints and truths of Jesus;

    yet I have pleaded for no more than is their due and right. Whatever else shall be the consequence of this plea,

    it shall stand for a monument and testimony against them and be an aggravation of their former, present, and future cruelties

    against Christ Jesus the Head, and all that uprightly love Him, His true disciples and followers.

  14. God Bless the children ๐Ÿ™

  15. How stupid are Republicans? They have Democrats a issue for women voters to get fired up about. So glad.

  18. human rights until you're born. then you're on your own.

  19. There is no separation of church and state in the constitution. The first amendment just states that the Congress cannot make a designated religion, not that it canโ€™t promote religion.

  20. Republicans are demons
