U.S. Rep. Martha Roby, R-Ala., on pro-abortion advocates’ reluctance to speak the word “abortion” and preference for such terms as “women’s health” and “reproductive rights.” Roby was speaking in support of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, a bill that bans federal funding for abortion through Obamacare and requires insurance companies to show which plans cover abortion. The House passed the measure, but the Senate is unlikely to consider it.

Allen’s latest award prompted her to speak out publicly for the first time about the abuse.
