So, here’s a fun factoid that I learned from listening to the Morning Joe segment below. From the Washington Post, January 22, 2020:
A majority of Americans (59 percent) said abortion should be legal in most or all cases, and about 7 in 10 said that Roe v. Wade should not be overturned, according to the survey conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Those figures have remained relatively stable through decades of debates and protests. Likewise, the poll found the public overwhelmingly believes abortion should be legal if the patient’s life is endangered (82 percent) and in the case of rape or incest (80 percent). Seventy-nine percent believe the decision is best made by women themselves in consultation with their doctors, rather than by lawmakers.
I commend to your attention this analysis of the likely political impact of the present Supreme Court fight. The discussion begins about six minutes into the video.
