New Poll Says Most Americans Support Abortion ‘for Any Reason,’ but Did Anyone Ask the Unborn? – Opinion

We’ve reached a sorry state in America when everyone from politicians to news outlets and low-information voters glom onto “poll results” as the final arbiter — “proof source,” as it were — on which to rest their cases; given that the poll results on which they glom support the views they already had.

It is absurd.

Perhaps the late comedian George Carlin said it best: “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.” Polls on overturning Roe v. Wade provide a perfect example — in multiple ways.

As reported by the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, their latest poll shows “more than two-thirds of Americans want to uphold Roe v. Wade, and most favor women having access to legal abortion for any reason.” That said, here’s the salient question: What percentage of those “two-thirds” of Americans who oppose overturning Roe actually understand WhatThey oppose each other?

Anecdotally, I can tell you, as a political pundit, most people I talk to — both women and men — who support Roe wrongly believe overturning it would outlaw abortion from sea to shining sea. It is impossible to be more wrong.

As reported in mid-May by America Magazine, in an article titled “Why Americans Don’t Understand Polling on Roe vs. Wade,” according to a Monmouth University poll released on May 11, only 44 percent of those polled said Congress should “pass a law allowing abortions nationwide” (likely unconstitutional), if Roe is overturned. The overwhelming majority of respondents wanted Congress either to allow abortion laws to be left to states (43%), nor to ban abortions nationwide (9%); neither is possible if Roe remains in effect.

Confused? Me, too, to an extent — just as I am with the notion that, according to the WSJ poll, most Americans believe on-demand abortion should be It is legal regardless of the reason. But there is one thing I’m not confused about at all. On the contrary, I’m crystal clear on it: at the end of the proverbial day, there are two paramount people in this whole mess: a pregnant woman and the unborn child she carries. These two people should be equal in representation when it comes to abortion.

Although pregnant women are on either side of the abortion debate, how about unborn children? As 49 Democrat senators voted last May, they could legally abort their babies up to birth if it weren’t for the Republicans. You can have an abortion on demand, regardless of the reason. What would it take to allow the unborn to vote? They would be so proud! How can they vote to save their lives?

Also IfRoe overturned as was expected. The WSJ

In the past, the high court recognized the right to abortion up to the point that the fetus can sustain meaningful life in the outside world. This typically occurs around weeks 22-24 of pregnancy. Roe could be overturned by some states.

Other laws have been passed to restrict the procedure. They are blocked currently by federal and state courts. These laws could be put into force if Roe is overturned. Oklahoma and Texas both have implemented abortion bans within the last year.

Let’s get to the bottom of it:

Clearly, regardless of the hyperbolic scare tactics of the pro-abortion crowd, overturning Roe would not outlaw abortion throughout the country, nor would it “threaten our democracy.” Ignore the idiocy; focus on the facts.

A second misconception is that the left believes men do not have the right to vote on the issue of abortion. The last time I checked — although I’m not a biologist — it took a male and a female to produce a child.

Given that unborn children cannot be polled and asked if they want to be “allowed” to live, or sentenced to death, they need as much support from as many corners as possible. It is possible. “Women’s health care” aside, of course.
