NEW HAVEN, Connecticut, January 22, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) Exactly forty-seven years after the passage of Roe v. Wade legalizing abortion in the U.S., a new Marist poll shows that a strong majority of Americans across the country want to elect candidates who support substantial abortion restrictions. The poll also found that most Americans still reject the Supreme Courts reasoning in the 1973 case.
Most Americans want the court to reinterpret Roe either by stopping legalized abortion or by returning the issue to the states, said Knights of Columbus CEO Carl Anderson. The Knights of Columbus is the survey sponsor.
According to the poll, a notable proportion (41%) of those who identify as pro-choice are more likely to vote for candidates who support restrictions, as are more than nine in 10 who identify as pro-life (96%).
The fact that such large numbers of Americans who identify as pro-choice nevertheless support restrictions and the revisiting of Roe v. Wade shows how misleading it is to conflate the term pro-choice with support for radically pro-abortion position that calls for unrestricted abortion, said Anderson.
About two-thirds of Americans (65%) and the same percentage of registered voters say they are more likely to vote for candidates who would limit abortion to at most the first three months of pregnancy. This includes about nine in 10 Republicans (88%), more than six in 10 independents (62%), and more than four in ten Democrats (44%).

That Trump has an uncanny way of being out front of this type of information.
The Republican leadership basically kept us in the wilderness for 40 years... (Okay, about 28,... but the premise still holds)
Time to take on the Philistines...
Including today’s Goliath of Gath . . . Planned Parenthood!
I nominate the Governor of Virginia, the Governor of New York and Kermit Gosnell to experience what post birth abortion is like.
This may get me banned and on a watch list, but Eric Rudolph will always be one of my heroes.
Well, certainly them too...
It speaks volumes that With the exception of abortion, Americans have accepted the unconstitutional “rights” fabricated by Scotus.
As a people, we’ve never accepted this non-judicial convenience murder, nor the right to terminate the next generation.
Scotus is tyrannical. It recognizes no checks whatsoever.
Thanks for the mention.
