Support for Roe. V. Wade
Reaches All-Time High

Townhall, by Daniel Doherty

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/22/2013 11:31:01 AM

Regardless of one’s position on the High Court’s infamous decision forty years ago today to legalize abortion “[a]t any stage of pregnancy, for any reason,” most Americans -- not to mention legal scholars and academics -- recognize that Roe is bad Constitutional law. Nevertheless, support for the controversial ruling has reached an all-time high, at least according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll: Forty years after the Supreme Court legalized abortion in its Roe v. Wade decision, seven out of 10 Americans support the groundbreaking rulings, according to a poll released Tuesday.

Comments:
This is terribly depressing. I thought I had read that the pro-life groups were now a majority. Was I ever wrong.

I wouldn´t trust any poll coming from NBC, even if the WSJ is partially involved.

Lets see...

"Do your support a womans right to choose?" Asked that way, big support for Roe V Wade.

"Do you support a womans right to kill her child?" Would bring a different answer...

This is a result of the leftist domination of media and academia, plain and simple. And also of Republicans/conservatives doing the same things over and over and over.

But the thing here is that Roe V Wade may be supported, but abortion isn´t so much. Clinton´s empty: safe, legal and rare, promise is indeed something people prefer. The same people who don´t want laws to take guns don´t want laws to make these other decisions.

However, abortion is evil. So how do we stop it? By changing tack. Information. Flood the zone. Make certain that girls see 3D sonogram pictures. That they learn about gestation from conception to birth.

By focusing on overturning Roe v Wade, the life movement has given the information (or squashing of it) advantage to the leftist, death community.

Most people are too young to know that the abortion movement was started to reduce the number of blacks being born into society (they claimed it was to control a growing population.) Of course, now it simply represents a means of permitting recreational, unprotected sex, with minimal consequences. Besides, it is a freebie for many.... Freebies from the taxpayer always become popular.

I guess when Texas finally gets fed up and seceeds, the sluts and prostitutes can go back to their home states to have their NØbamacare provided free abortions...

Two earth changing events took place on January 22. The first was in 1972. The deaths of millions of innocent babies was authorized by the murderous monsters on the Supreme Court of the United Sates. It is truly one of the darkest days in world history.

The second event was the birth of my daughter, one of God´s sweetest and most precious daughters. She was born in Fairbanks, Alaska on January 22, 1977. She came quick! The doctor only had one arm in his gown. He caught her in his bare hand. Otherwise she would have been dangling off the end of the delivery table, swinging like a soap on a rope! Happy birthday sweetheart! It is truly one of the brightest days in world history!

Everyone rejoice!

The woman´s right to choose, and the woman murdering her baby are the same thing. Hence it is each woman that decides to abort, who is most at fault for each abortion..

Until anti-abortion people start concentrating on changing the woman´s mind who has decided to get an abortion, to NOT getting one, much effort is wasted.

I see a parallel development in this process.

Where have all the real men gone?

Oh sure, some of them would want the child but are in fact powerless to keep a woman from having an abortion. But face it, how many times have you heard of that happening?

Instead, "men" are in the forefront of all this, helping with the decision to abort, demanding it, or wimpily going along with it. What kind of a man takes his girlfriend to an abortion appointment? What kind of a man allows his child--especially late term--to be murdered under his watch. I am NOT talking about rape victims, incest, etc, I am talking about normal, healthy babies that are just "inconvenient".

What kind of man contributes to the Townhall forums, sitting on their useless brains and typing out support of all abortions?

What has happened to men in this country? Aside from a dwindling minority, nothing but irresponsible, braying, wimpy cowards that can´t handle a baby, can´t handle responsibility, and have no idea what it means to be a man.

Abortion will continue to grow as humans continue to be more and more selfish. It is cheaper for a man to pay for an abortion than it is to pay child support.

That´s one of the big reasons the pubbies lost in 2012. People, especially women, do believe the GOP is anti-woman. Look at Akin and Mourdock as just two immediate examples. The GOP ran them for the Senate of the United States of America!!!

In America, every hour, around the clock, seven days a week, all year long, for forty years- a kindergarten class full of twenty American children are murdered by a ´Woman´s Right To Choose´.
Murder is murder.
And this terrible murder is particularly gruesome and grisly.
Always.

Abortion is murder - this needs to be repeated loud and often. The same people who will support the murder of unborn children will curiously fail to defend those lucky enough to be born by forcing them into gun free schools for indoctrination in communism. Priorities please - respect life. Remeber Beethoven was almost lost to the world before he came into it.

Since this nation´s majority seem to find infanticide "legal" then I see little moral compunction to feel sorry for the loss of ANY life. If this current debate was really about "caring for and protecting our children", then that is nothing but hypocracy of the highest order in light of abortion on demand.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
