A better educated public = a more pro-life public

A new poll from CNN shows that a majority of the U.S. is pro-life.

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.

Crouse, Janice (CWA)"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.
