A second one added: It’s a sad day when a robot gets citizenship easier in Saudi Arabia and there are people out there struggling and fighting for his or her citizenship…

While a third one said: A Real woman fights for abortion rights and a robot woman wants babies ! How crazy are the people in this days ? Lord have mercy !
