Is the Nation Really in Favor of Abortion?

Friend and fellow Lutheran blogger, Bunnie Diehl, has made an excellent point here. She cites an article by Matt Kaufman at Boundless magazine. Basically, the point is that if the country is so clearly pro-abortion, as the prophets of death proclaim, then why are they so worried that Roe v. Wade will be overturned? As Kaufman explains it, a reversal of Roe v. Wade would only re-grant the individual states the right to enact their own abortion laws. So what does NARAL have to worry about? If their analysis of the population's views is correct, then reversing Roe v. Wade should have little or no effect on the actual availability of abortion. Unless, of course, the constantly touted statistics about how much Americans love abortion are skewed and misleading. I propose that underneath their bluster, the death merchants realize that the American people would prefer there to be much greater restictions on abortion rights . . . if actually given a say in the matter.
