    WASHINGTON (BP)--American voters oppose legalized abortion in the overwhelming majority of circumstances allowed under current law, according to a new poll.

    The Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, along with the subsequent Doe v. Bolton ruling, legalized abortion nationwide virtually for any reason throughout the nine months of pregnancy. Although 55 percent of voters in the poll supported Roe, that number dropped to 48 percent once they learned about Roe's wide reach. At the same time, opposition to Roe climbed from 34 percent to 43 percent.

    Cue the "Well, of course, look at the source you're quoting" argument, though these same people rant and rave if you query their favorite sources :laugh:

    Yea Im sure APB news and media matters can give an opposing view that is more credible to some. BP didnt do the survey though.
