Forty-six years ago today, the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion. It was an overstep of the Constitution which resulted in an injustice that led to some 60 million unborn people who've not given an opportunity to live. But public opinion is changing.  According to a Gallup Poll last year, only 28 percent of Americans support 2nd trimester abortions and only 13 percent support third trimester abortions. This means that a solid majority 2/3rd's of Americans are for protecting unborn life at least for most of the pregnancy. Many are recognizing the humanity of the unborn and that the unborn deserve to have their rights restored. Perhaps this is happening because more people realize that at one point in their life journey they were residents in their mother's womb as well.
