Last week’s poll asked, “Should late-term abortions be banned from use?”
The results broke down like this:
By a vast margin — 75 percent — AF&O readers come down on the side of a woman’s right to choose.
This sampling was split nearly down the middle on the issue:
41 percent of all participants said they believe late-term abortion should not be banned, though they say it should be used only when a woman’s life is in danger.
Thirty-one percent of those polled said that late-term abortion should not be banned, but that “any and all abortion procedures should be available to women for any reason.”
Fourteen percent were all for the ban, saying, “Abortion is murder, and all abortion should be banned under law.”
Another seven percent said that though they are pro-choice in general, “late-term abortion is too much” and should be banned.
Three percent of those polled weighed in with “I don’t care.”
Thanks to all who took the survey for taking part here at Free Speech Central.
By the way, Dubya Bush is expected to sign the ban into law next week, but reproductive choice supporters are already taking the matter to court. Due to precedent, many believe the ban will be ruled unconstitutional because it does not make an exception for instances where a woman’s life is in danger.
Time for this week’s AF&O Poll. The question involves the expect Nov. 2 consecration of the Rev. V. Gene Robinson as the Epsicopal and Anglican Church’s first openly gay bishop. The ordination could trigger a split of the worldwide denomination.
What do you think? Should religious denominations accept openly gay clergy?
