Phony Poll Supports Roe

A much-publicized poll by the media declared 71 percent support Roe v Wade that legalized abortion.  The wording was biased and misleading, saying Roe “established a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion, at least in the first three months of pregnancy.”  In truth, Roe legalized abortion throughout pregnancy for any reason, not just the first three months.  Pollsters then asked if Roe should be “completely overturned,” as if doing so would ban all abortion.  It would simply give states the right to decide.  An earlier poll showed nearly 60 percent of young adults don’t even know what Roe is about.  This new poll simply worded the questions to get the results they wanted – support for their extreme agenda of abortion throughout pregnancy.
