Wait a sec, you say. Didnt Gallup find just six months ago that the number who describe themselves as pro-choice was at a record low? Indeed they did.
But as the saying goes, my friends: Elections have consequences.
More voters than ever now identify themselves as pro-choice when it comes to abortion, and most rate the issue as important to how they vote.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters shows that 54% describe themselves as pro-choice on the issue of abortion, while 38% say they are pro-life. Lets look at trends on abortion in a few recent polls. This one, from a WSJ poll in mid-October, isnt too helpful because the only point of reference is data from March 2005. Even so, theres a shift:

This nation is asking for it. What a fall from grace...
Among many other things that could be said; we live in a dictatorship of moronic masses.
And we hope/expect God to save our country when genocide has been the law of the land for decades? I don’t think so.
Pro-Choice = Pro-Death = Anti-Life.
The leftwing kooks/socialists love to change the language to a more pleasing term to hide their satanic dark godlessness.
Homosexual perverts = Gay
Pedophiles = Man-Boy Love
They are absolutely disgusting in s many ways!!!!!!!!!!
We lose because we lose control of the language.Pro choice and Pro Life are not two sides of an argument.We lost the framing which was clear: “should abortion be legal or illegal?” is the clearer question. Control the language, control the issue. This is what is behind all of the “politically correct” language police and the pretense of offense on issues. Now we are losing the language of “terrorism” by allowing them to call those acts everything but what they are. We have to wise up on language. Politeness can be lethal.
Don’t discount the effect of retards like Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock linking “pro-life” to a comfort with rape.
Pro-choice my rear! Only the mother has the choice. The baby has no choice and is simply killed for the convenience of the mother.
Yeah, but what’s the partisan split? What are the results “unskewed?” (sarcasm off)
Sorry, couldn’t resist and I am all polled out.
I have an idea, when someone answers these questions in the affirmative, how about the poller immediately applies the post natal abortion approach on them and see how they like it. Frankly, we won’t miss them.
Interesting observation in the article:
“Nice and steady there in the mid-20s for legal under any circumstances over the past five years until suddenly, in August of this year, the number jumps. Why? Well, what else happened in August this year? Right: Todd Akin opened his yapper about legitimate rape and womens supposed biological defense mechanisms against it and that was the beginning of the end for Republican chances to take back the Senate. How big a deal was it? Weeks later, the NYT poll was seeing more support for the idea that abortion should be generally available than it had in over 15 years:”
yes, hopefully next election we can dispense with that stuff.
Why should anyone on this site believe anything coming out of Rasmussen?
OH LORD, PLEASE SEE ALL OF US THAT LOVE YOU AND THAT STAND AGAINST THESE DEMONS AND THEIR EVIL. PLEASE DO NOT JUDGE US AS YOU JUDGE THEM. DELIVER US IN THE NAME OF JESUS... AMEN.
You mean “murdered” don’t you? I do.
I don’t think so either. See Psalm 2 for details.
Go back to the DUmp.
With friends like you, who needs enemies?
“Dont discount the effect of retards like Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock linking pro-life to a comfort with rape.”
Did they really think what happens in MO stays in MO? It wasn’t just about 2 senate seats.
Have faith my brothers and sisters.
In Jesus' name,
