    A new poll released Thursday by Huffington Post/You Gov found that most Americans would support banning abortion after 20 weeks. Texas is in the midst of passing a new law which would do exactly that. If successful it will become the 12th state to do so.

    Among 1,000 adults surveyed, the poll found 59 percent would approve of restricting abortion at 20 weeks while 30 percent would not, a roughly 2:1 ratio. The poll was further broken down into those who strongly or somewhat favored or opposed such a law. It found 41 percent strongly in favor an 20 percent strongly opposed, another 2:1 ratio.

    Asked if current laws were too strict or not strict enough, 43 percent said not enough and just 20 percent said too strict. Of the remaining respondents, 17 percent felt current laws were about right and the rest were not sure.

    Of course Liberals would demand that only women should be allowed to decide.
    For the sake of arugment lets suppose that 54% of women favor NO restricition. - thus the proposed law is not passed.

    So with that thinking, than only teenagers should decide the minium age for buying cancer sticks and booze!

    Right? :smilewinkgrin: :rolleyes: :eek:
