Most Americans have a real problem with legal late-term abortions. In a 2011 Gallup poll, 79 percent of those who are “pro-choice” and 94 percent of those who are “pro-life” said third trimester abortion should be illegal. Fifty two percent of those “pro-choice” and 90 percent of those “pro-life” said second trimester abortions should be illegal.
When the majority of the American people see the grave moral problem of late term abortion, shouldn’t they hear from their President? Shouldn't he defend the legality of this moral outrage? At the very least, he should recognize and respond to the overwhelming concerns borne by most American citizens.
