"Justice in the life and conduct of the State is possible only as first it resides in the hearts and souls of the citizens."

As I've said many times over the years, we win the abortion battle not in some courtroom but in the hearts of the American citizenry.

A record low 41 percent of Americans identify themselves as “pro-choice” on abortion, according to a poll released Wednesday, while the number of Americans who say they are “pro-life” bounced back into the majority.
The results from the Gallup Poll survey confirm a sharp turnaround in personal attitudes about abortion in the 17 years since the polling firm first asked the question. In 1995, the first year of the poll, 56 percent of respondents described themselves as pro-choice on abortion, compared with 33 percent who were pro-life.
Pollsters and social scientists say they cannot say for sure why views have shifted, nor is it clear that Americans will maintain these positions.
But pro-life advocates quickly cheered the news that 50 percent of Americans describe themselves as pro-life, while pro-choice supporters noted that the same Gallup Poll survey found little or no movement on key measures about whether abortion is acceptable or should be made illegal. [link]
