I think the pro-life community has worked incredibly hard over the past several decades to educate and change opinions. That change, dare I say it, seems to be taking effect. Wanting to address the issue of Canada’s current unrestricted law doesn’t make you “pro-life” necessarily, is just means you’re not completely comfortable with no restrictions whatsoever. The majority of Canadians fall into that category. Is there anyone who disagrees with the majority of Canadians? Of course there is, but you can’t say every poll is “wrong” just because it doesn’t illustrate what you want it to.
Over the past few years, we have conducted many surveys in Canada and around the world on topics that are highly controversial: the legalization of marijuana, thedeath penalty, the use of torture to interrogate terrorism suspects, and corporal punishment in the home. The reaction from people who disagree with the findings because they find themselves in the minority is usually the same. “Everybody I know agrees with my point of view,” they say. “So the questions have to be biased.”
