The executive director of a grassroots pro-life organization is discouraged by the findings of a recent poll.
Jim Sedlak of American Life League (ALL) only considers one aspect of any poll on the subject.
"From a pro-life perspective, the only one that I ever look at is the percentage of people who think that abortion should be illegal in all circumstances, because obviously if you're pro-life, you want to save all the babies," he tells OneNewsNow.
That, he says, should be the ultimate goal of the movement, which means pro-lifers' job is to help people realize that every baby has a right to life. But only 14 percent of respondents in the latest ABC News-Washington Post poll believe that is true.
"When these polls were first started to be taken a year after Roe v. Wade, a Gallup Poll put that number at 21 percent," Sedlak references. "So according to this poll, we've gone from 21 percent down to 14 percent in 43 years."
Although other surveys show a higher percentage, the ALL president says the ABC-Washington Post poll is a horrendous report card on the movement. So rather than limiting abortion and passing regulations on abortion clinics, he suggests pro-life organizations should unite on making abortion illegal under all circumstances and always explain why that is the right approach.
