The CNN poll shows that 62 percent want abortions
illegal in all cases or legal in only certain circumstances. Janice
Crouse of Concerned Women for America (CWA) suggests that
the survey results reflect a better educated public.
"Quite frankly I think it shows that Americans are
looking at the current situation when it comes to abortion and
realizing that the vast majority of abortions are for a woman's
convenience or for birth-control," she notes.
The public is beginning to see that more and more abortion
patients are women who have had multiple abortions and are in their
20s and 30s, rather than the former image of a frightened teenager
facing an unplanned pregnancy.
"So, I think people are looking at that and saying is this
the kind of culture we want, where people on a whim just get rid of
a pregnancy? And they're saying no, this is not the kind
of country we want," Crouse offers.
With better technology, especially with sonograms, the CWA
spokesperson says women realize they are carrying a real human
being, not a clump of cells.
She goes on to attribute the better educated public to the 40
years of hard work on the part of grassroots pro-lifers.
