A brewing snowstorm did not deter thousands of abortion rights opponents from marching in the nation’s capital, while pro-choice groups used the weather as an opportunity to fundraise.
Ahead of the anniversary of Roe v. Wade this week, Marco Rubio vowed to take action to further limit access to abortion domestically and abroad, Ted Cruz used Martin Luther King Jr. Day to push his opposition to reproductive rights, and Carly Fiorina used preschoolers as props in an anti-choice rally.
Amid the week’s chaos, you may have missed Ben Carson comparing abortion to slavery, John Kasich attributing the gender pay gap to paid family leave, and Martin O’Malley releasing his “Worker’s Bill of Rights.”
Although both Clinton and Sanders support similar policy steps, the major difference between the two is in how they would pay for it. Clinton has vowed not to increase taxes on the middle class. Meanwhile, Sanders and his campaign argue that all Americans should have a financial stake in an expanded family leave program.
A recent Bloomberg Politics report declared super PACs to have been “neutralized” by the media’s obsession with Trump’s seemingly endless series of gaffes and outrageous rhetoric, but PACs still stand to play a major role in the 2016 election season.

Trump refused to say whether he would seek to overturn Roe v. Wade, underscoring the business mogul’s murky history of indecision when it comes to his stance on reproductive health.
Even with federal protections and the state-level policies that mirror them, we don’t have the law enforcement tools to end a culture of anti-choice violence.
Republican candidates Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Carly Fiorina used the deadly shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood to push falsehoods about abortion and anti-choice violence.
