Interesting Article

Oops! I put this on the wrong site- sorry!!!

I found this article on msnbc (this is NOT where I get my news, but this article was interesting) about how Americans are becoming more pro-life.
I thought some of you might be interested. I agree that because Obama is so left wing in the area of abortion, it is turning many to become more conservative in that area. Any other thoughts?

I seriously doubt that people are actually changing their views on such an issue. These polls do, however, consistently underrepresent younger Americans without land lines.

I agree about the younger people being underrepresented, but at the same time, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a slight move to the right on this one, especially with the whole Notre Dame thing last weekend. I'm curious about polls during the Clinton years. If there was any sort of shift with him as president. Perhaps more independents on the fence with this issue move towards the minority, alot like rooting for the underdog team.

I certainly do not represent any sort of group, but I think for me- who was already socially conservative-this has made me stronger in those convictions. Not that I would change the way I vote because I believe in the politics of the Dems much more then the Reps, but maybe that I would be willing to stand up more for conservativce social values. Does that make sense? But, I do agree with Peter- they only interviewed 1100 people, so how good of a sample is that? I don't know.

I doubt that a majority of the people polled disagree with Roe v. Wade, the 1st trimester abortions. I am hopeful that the more light you shine on how horrible partial birth abortion is, and in virtually 99% of the cases unnecessary, more and more people will disagree with it. Realistically, we will never get rid of 1st trimester abortions. I can only hope that partial birth will become non-existent across the country.
