IN the most recent Gallup poll on abortion, as many Americans described themselves as pro-life as called themselves pro-choice. A combined 58 percent of Americans stated that abortion should either be “illegal in all circumstances” or “legal in only a few circumstances.” These results do not vary appreciably by gender: in the first Gallup poll to show a slight pro-life majority, conducted in May 2009, half of American women described themselves as pro-life.

But if you’ve followed the media frenzy surrounding the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation’s decision — which it backpedaled from, with an apology, after a wave of frankly brutal coverage — to discontinue about $700,000 in funding for Planned Parenthood, you would think all these millions of anti-abortion Americans simply do not exist.

TWO CHRISTIAN pro-life campaigners faced the start of prosecution proceedings on Monday for holding signs showing the effects of abortion on the unborn and refusing to take them down. The very same day, the pair’s colleagues protested in the same way outside an abortion clinic – and their actions saved the life of a 22-week-old baby.
