Basically, you are claiming that people are so uneducated on the issue that they didn’t have any real idea about a law in place for half a century but we should listen to their opinion about the complexities of fetal development which I can assure you they(including our legislators) understand far less than the law.
1. Should the laws reflect the will of the people if the majority are ignorant on an issue?
2. Do things other than science shape opinions on abortion?
All I'm really claiming is that the average person doesn't understand this issue very well. The contradictions in polling seem to prove that out. It would be interesting to see where the majority would draw the line for access to abortion if they were better educated. I'm not sure if they would set it at 13 weeks, 26 weeks, or somewhere in between.
