I'd say that the words chosen for this discussion have been specifically
chosen for their heavy usage. Wikipedia has a translation of "All human
beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with
reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of
brotherhood.", in what I believe in the new apostrophe-laden orthography:

Barlyq adamdar tu'masynan azat ja'ne qadyr-qasi'eti men quqtary ten' bolyp
du'ni'ege keledi. Adamdarg'a aqyl-parasat, ar-ojdan berilgen, sondyqtan
olar bir-birimen tu'ystyq, bau'yrmaldyq qarym-qatynas jasau'lary ti'is.

It's not that bad, though apostrophes still aren't a orthographic win. I'm
voting for the Uniform Turkic Alphabet, for the grand total of zero my vote
is worth.
