November 26, 2018 Signal Contributor 1

Abortion should not be used simply as a tool to promote dialogue for the sake of what can only be described as the College’s tokenizing of a woman-centered issue.

“Is Bill Clinton’s past relevant to Hillary’s campaign?” “No. Bill isn’t running for president, his wife is. There are more important issues to focus on.” “Yes, because Hillary blatantly tried to get the victims to […]
