DEFENSIVE GUN USES ARE MORE PREVALENT THAN OFFENSIVE GUN USES: A 2013 review conducted by The National Academies Institute of Medicine and National Research Council, on behalf of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reported that “almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million, in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008.”

NO GENDER WAGE GAP: A 2018 Harvard Study titled “Why Do Women Earn Less Than Men? Evidence from Bus and Train Operators.” The authors of that study concluded, “the earnings gap can be explained in our setting by the fact that men take 48% fewer unpaid hours off and work 83% more overtime hours per year than women… The gap can be explained entirely by the fact that, while having the same choice sets in the workplace, women and men make different choices.”

LIFE BEGINS AT CONCEPTION: According to a study conducted by Steven Jacobs, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Chicago, overall, 95% of all biologists affirmed the biological view that a human’s life begins at conception. All of this points to the fact that abortion is killing a human.

THE COST TO TRANSITION TO RENEWABLE ENERGY: According to the Bank of America, it will cost the U.S. 150 trillion over 30 years to achieve net-zero emissions.

The annual cost of US$5 trillion is more than all the world’s governments and households spend every year on education.”
