We must continue to teach the Truth, and never, never, never let up. It's a child; not a choice.

Sadly,this poll probably does not reflect the true opinions of the masses.
If the question was broken down into three distinct parts the outcome would be much different in my opinion. IE:
Abortion O. K. during first trimester? Second? Third? I think the results would be mixed.
The majority of Roman Catholics are "pro-choice". Just check their voting stats.
Given the Right to Life movements history it seems far fetched to think that mere dialogue, argument, lip service and protest will stop the murders.
Judgement is not confined to fire and brimstone just look around at the current state of the nations of the world and the state of the Church!
