New poll finds most Americans opposed to abortion August 17, 2010

From Lifenews.com, a new Rasmussen poll has found that a majority of Americans find abortion morally wrong and that almost half say it is too easy to obtain an abortion in the US.  This continues a trend towards a growing rejection of abortion in the United States.  In addition, women appear to be some of the strongest pro-life supporters, making a lie of the common claim by the abortion industry that women overwhelmingly want access to abortion.

So, what’s going to happen in 5-10 years when 60% of Americans are opposed to abortion (if present trends continue)?  Will the courts continue to rule that popular will does not count?  Will we have another cultural arena in which the elites lecture to us little people, and tell us how silly and backwards we are?  It will be interesting to see if this trend continues long term, and whether mass popular opposition to abortion can finally end it, or at least dramatically lessen abortion’s availability, in this country. 

No, I’m not holding my breath.
