A new ABC News/Washington Post poll with biased questions appears to show that a strong majority of Americans support the infamous abortion ruling Roe v. Wade.

Life News reports:

According to the poll, 60 percent of Americans believe the U.S. Supreme Court should uphold Roe while just 27 percent say the court should overturn it. This included majorities of men and women, Catholics, rural and urban residents, young and old, people with college degrees and those without, as well as various racial groups.

These results, however, do not match with numerous other polls that show strong public opposition to what Roe does: It forces states to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions without limits up to viability and allows abortion on demand up to birth.

Many of the poll questions sound more like talking points from the pro-abortion lobby to illicit support for their cause than actual, information-based questions aimed at understanding Americans’ opinions.

The first question asks: “… abortion law in the United States is based on the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling known as Roe v. Wade. Do you think the Supreme Court should uphold Roe v. Wade or overturn it?” Nowhere does the question clarify what the ruling does, nor does it mention babies in the womb. Other polls that ask more specific questions about abortion legislation consistently find strong public opposition to what Roe does.

A June poll from AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that a large majority of Americans believe abortions should be illegal in the second (65 percent) and third trimesters (80 percent).

FIGURES LIE AND LIARS FIGURE!! While I don’t totally agree with R vs W, I can understand parts of it. But there can be no doubt that after a maximum of nine months or immenent threat of death to the mother, abortions can only be considered as murder.

The “up-to-birth” principle suggests the next step. Why not have a look before deciding whether or not its a keeper.
