Today is the fortieth anniversary of Roe vs.
Wade and we are using this ad.
To bring attention to the fact that it's time to draw the line little.
Bigger Africa and moved the -- -- for your -- could ever forget our anniversary.
All these years -- it's so many people's that we haven't -- Riverfront it's irresponsible and takes -- away from Newton put limits.
Over the last two years since the mid term elections 2010 Americans United for Life it's -- legal arm of the pro life -- we've seen.
Fifty bills that we've been involved in that are pro life legislation passed into law.
But I that they're raised some eyebrows as you can imagine this is the fortieth anniversary.
For the US Supreme Court.
Opinion Roe vs.
I'm forty years ago and pro life groups or.
Now with ads as well this one is on the web site.
The number of abortions since 1973.
In that number.
Actually is at the bottom of the page 54559.
I'm sorry 54559615.
I should say.
We're back with our panel.
This is obviously leading up to a big.
Big fight there have been statewide efforts Charles.
This administration is committed to pro choice where do you see this standing right now.
Well let's -- things that unlike the other social issues like legalization of drugs for gay rights.
Abortion as one would abort the pro abortion side the liberal side is not the wave of the future.
And what's amusing is that if you look at the opinions of the younger generation they are more pro life.
Event others in the other age race which is again surprising.
And different from the -- social issues.
-- so I think it is one that will remain in contention for generations.
And the lesson here -- specially for the gay rights legislation that the court.
Is gonna look at do not repeat.
Was happened at a time when there was a rapid social change Ronald Reagan had signed the most liberal abortion on -- country.
The major states -- changing of liberalizing.
And this put a stop to all of that it it decreed.
A liberal success longer before it was generally in the culture and he created all this social tension.
Let the people work it out in the states in referenda.
But not to do it by decree on hi I hope that the court has learned that lesson wanted Hussein.
With gay issues as well.
Fox -- right before the election AB had the split pro choice 50% pro life 42%.
And you know depending on the poll it is -- fairly close split.
Maybe change -- and there are those that that those.

That's the problem is that when you look at other polling -- that -- but the majority in the high sixties of support for.
Tom -- and legal abortion.
That the fight.
That pro life movement has waged on restrictions on access.
Tom has been.
Very successful and they have succeeded.
In that -- enacting restrictions across the country.
In almost every state.
That is reduced access to abortion that is frankly taken a pro choice movement by a little bit by surprise hundreds of thousands turn out four pro life.
March for life here on the ball yet look and I'm I'm a little out later on here -- I thought that had.
