40 years ago today, the Supreme Court voted, with a 7 to 2 majority, in favor of Roe. Most people still agree with that decision.
More than 50 percent of Americans believe abortion should legal in all or most cases while 70 percent want the landmark Supreme Court ruling of Roe v. Wade to be upheld, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Monday night.
Over the years a complacency blanketed the public over this settled law. It was taken for granted. I would personally like to thank the Republican party, with assists from Rick Santorum, Todd Akin, etc., for waking everyone up. Yet another issue where the GOP finds itself out of the mainstream.
