Hillary believes that family planning should be easily accessible for every woman. This includes contraceptives such as birth control pills and if necessary, abortions. She believes that all women should be able to decide what is right for them and what they want to do with their bodies.
Hillary claims that she will “fight to protect the rights of all women including the rights to reproductive care”.

system has become “too cushiony.” Which lead to Palins’ respond about having welfare and work
programs be temporarily to prevent this permanent comfort.

job hunt serious. Paul states “If people continue to get comfortable with welfare and not bother to look
for a job they will forget what it is like to have an interview.”

to the voters.

Los Angeles (CNN) – Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, gave back to the Los Angeles community by volunteering to feed the homeless and hungry.
As the holiday season approaches, she acknowledges the population of people living in poverty in the City of Los Angeles and realizes the importance of community work.
On Monday evening, she flew down to the city of Los Angeles to give a helping hand. Dressed in an apron, sweater, and gloves, Clinton scooped and served food to the homeless at the Los Angeles Mission.
Clinton believes in aiding those who are in need of a helping hand and isn’t afraid to personally extend her own hand to help the most needy communities. She looks to revamp the welfare state of the United States in order to provide opportunities to move out of poverty.
