Obama Election Did Not Change America's View on Abortion

Below is not written by me. This comes from Fr. Frank Pavone, God bless him! +JMJ+

Those in the mainstream news media who support abortion will bombard our fellow Americans with false reports that the election of Obama is a sign that America has “moved beyond abortion” ... or “gotten over its fixation on the fetus” ... and is now willing to accept abortion-on-demand as the law of the land.

Nothing could be further from the truth!

In fact, a recent poll conducted by the Marist College Institute of Public Opinion shows that only eight percent of Americans support the extremist abortion policy of Roe v Wade, namely, that a woman has the legal right to kill her unborn child for any reason and throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

That means that 92% of our fellow Americans want abortion restricted in some way. And of those:

· 32 percent say abortion should only be allowed in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.
· 15 percent say only to save the life of the mother.
· And the remaining 13 percent believe as you and I do; namely, that abortion should never be permitted under any circumstance.

Even more telling, the Marist study found that even among those who call themselves “pro-choice,” only 15 percent favor unrestricted abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy ... which is what Roe v Wade currently allows.
