The news is heartening: the percentage of Americans who identify themselves as “pro-choice” is at its lowest point ever = 41%, down 6 percentage points from last July, according to Gallup. Self-identified “pro-life” Americans are at 50%, up from 33% in 1995 when Gallup first began asking the question. Twenty percent of Americans think abortion should be illegal in all circumstances, and another 52% think it should be banned in certain circumstances, combined for a whopping 72% of the public opposed to the legal status quo on abortion.
Reasonable people agree: there should be limits on abortion. There need to be common-sense regulations on the practice. Tell your friends and neighbors: Abortion is out of control. It harms women and kills children. Tell your elected officials: Support restrictions on taxpayer funding for abortion. Support parental involvement laws for minors seeking abortion. Support informed consent and safety precautions for pregnant women.
Spread the good news, because inch by inch and row by row, we are making the garden grow. Thank you. Please continue to sow the Culture of Life.
