Pro-lifers pleased with direction of poll results

pregnancy ultrasoundPolls continue to show the public is concerned about late-term abortions -- as has been the trend for years.

Dr. David O'Steen of the National Right to Life Committee has reviewed the results of a CBS poll showing a distinct opposition to abortions performed in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.

"The poll found that a total of 55 percent thought abortion should either not be permitted at all or be subject to limitations and restrictions," Dr. O'Steen relays. "Of course the position of the pro-abortion movement is that there should be no limitations or restrictions."

He sees this as an indication that the public has become better educated on the fact that a pregnant woman is carrying a living human being. As for concern regarding late-term abortions, the CBS poll is not the first to show this majority public opinion.

O'Steen

"We've also seen many polls that showed abortion shouldn't be allowed when the baby can feel pain -- after 20 weeks," Dr. O'Steen reports. "Polls consistently show majority opposition to abortion after the first trimester."

State legislatures will have to deal with the practice in the short-term, though, as elections do have consequences, and the U.S. House is dominated by left-wing Democrats. So for the time being, it would be impossible to get the 60 votes needed in the Senate to end a Democrat filibuster on a pro-life measure.
