From the Paper:"From its very opening, Hillary Clinton's speech is intended to be an emotional appeal to the people. She uses Roe v. Wade as a benchmark in time, perhaps to give the speech legitimacy by associating it with that successful court case. In her opening paragraph, Clinton sets the tone for the rest of her speech. She refers to the Roe v. Wade decision as being a "landmark decision that struck a blow for freedom and equality for women". Clinton speaks of people on "the front line," of Roe v. Wade as being "in jeopardy." She also equates Roe v. Wade with "quality healthcare". All of these words and phrases are intended to elicit the listener's emotions. Many such words and phrases populate Hilary Clinton's speech."
