NY Gov. Cuomo signing abortion lawA recent poll indicates the pro-life/pro-abortion split among Americans is holding steady – but that more than ever, the issue will determine who they vote for. A prominent pro-life group contends that's because voters have gotten a wake-up call.

Gallup Poll suggests that 60 percent of Americans want all or most abortions made illegal. Laura Echevarria of the National Right to Life Committee believes the surge is partly the result of lawmakers in New York (pictured) passing a wide-open abortion law that legalizes abortion, even until the moment a child is being born.

"I think some of the polling is in response to that where more and more people are saying they disagree with that and they are supporting a pro-life position after that," Echevarria says.

I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)The pro-life spokesperson says not only did liberal politicians in the New York legislature show their true colors, but like-minded lawmakers in Virginia failed in their attemptto mimic the Empire State.

"I think people were appalled at that. We certainly saw that happen in Virginia – that people became aware of what was happening and … turned out at the capitol in response to that. We had thousands turn out to say [they] disagree with this," Echevarria says to this decision.

Organizations such as Created Equal and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust are composed largely of young pro-lifers who use actual pictures of aborted babies in their demonstrations – a method that effectively displays the reality of abortion: taking the life of an unborn baby.
