According to NARAL Pro Choice America [a pro-abort lobby group]:
Seven in 10 Americans support the right to legal abortion.
But appeals to survey results are a shifty line of argument, even in a democracy:
[Victor] Reppert asks whether it is reasonable to pass laws against abortion in a society in which large segments of the population do not oppose abortion.
Well, was it reasonable to pass laws against slavery in a society in which large segments of the population did not oppose slavery?
