Policy debate. Resolution=plan text. Contention 1– Patriarchy The Hyde Amendment actively prevents low-income women from receiving abortion services- Northup, 2009 "Since 1977 when Hyde was first enacted, low-income women have been deprived of that right by anti-choice politicians intent on doing away with a woman's access to abortion altogether.

Before continuing, I will present the following definitions...

SuperPerfundo
fresnoinvasion

Tax revenue The government could tax and regulate the marijuana industry, generating state revenue at a time when it is neede...
