Quote of the day

The gratification comes in the doing, not in the results.

Abortion and pro-choice are complex issues that require serious consideration


Pro-life politicians were pushing for a law that would prohibit abortions after the first six weeks of pregnancy. The new “heartbeat” measure has been appealed in 2020 in federal court, with pro-choice activists claiming it could be their final push to make these measures a reality!

The Supreme Court’s draft opinion that leaked Monday night effectively achieves what the anti-abortion movement has been aiming for decades. But in public opinion, it’s not a popular move at all.

Several polls from the last few years show that a majority of Americans do not support banning abortion. For example, a recent poll from ABC/Washington Post shows that 54% think Roe v. Wade should be upheld and only 28% say it should be overturned; 18% said they had no opinion.

The unpopularity of overturning Roe isn’t a new finding, either. Polling from CNN going back to 1989 shows that the percentage of Americans who support overturning Roe has never risen above 36%.

So right now, the Supreme Court is set to change a ruling that most Americans want to keep in place.
