53/58 procent af USA er imod abort – alle fundamentaliske kredse bag Bush jvf. DR Online

I USA er befolkningen delt i spørgsmålet om der skal være fri abort eller ej. Præsident George W. Bush ønsker at give delstaterne mulighed for selv at afgøre, hvorvidt de ønsker fri abort eller ej. . I Danmark har vi haft fri abort siden 1969, og for langt de fleste danskere virker fri abort som det eneste rigtige. ‘Pro-choice’-aktivisterne demonstrerede lørdag i New York, og DR benyttede naturligvis lejligheden til at håne George W. Bush.

25/4 08.31 Dr Online – Stordemonstration for kvinders abort-ret “Der er 2000 abort-klinikker i USA, men de er konstant lukningstruede, fordi regeringen fjerner dele af de offentlige tilskud… Den demokratiske præsidentkandidat John Kerry er modsat præsident Bush for abort.”

25/4 17.03 DR Online – Demonstration for fri abort i Washington “Demonstrationen, der forløb under parolen “march for kvindens liv”, blev anført af flere medie-stjerner, heriblandt Whoopi Goldberg, Demi Moore, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Bacon og Alec Baldwin. Anledningen til demonstrationen er ifølge arrangørerne præsident George W. Bush og hans fundamentalistiske kristne baglands forsøg på at indskrænke kvinders ret til at få abort.”

Hele to artikler om samme sag, begge gengivet på DR tekst. Sådan gjorde fratagelse af offentlige tilskud til abort-klinikker halvdelen af USAs befolkning til kristne fundamentalister… Virkeligheden er en helt anden. Følgende oplysninger er fra en meningsmåling foretaget af Zogby International i december sidste år:

“Polls are consistently showing that Americans are becoming more pro-life. A December poll conducted by Zogby International, a respected nonpartisan polling firm, confirms that, by a 53% to 36% margin, the public supports the statement, ‘Abortion destroys a human life and is manslaughter.’… As previous polls have shown, a strong majority of Republicans take a pro-life position, but so do a sizable number of Democrats. Some 68 percent of Republicans agreed with the statement that abortion ‘destroys a human life and is manslaughter’ while 43 percent of Democrats in the U.S. also agreed. The Zogby poll also showed that Americans are more inclined to support ‘restrictions on abortion’ compared to five or ten years ago. According to the poll, 22 percent of Americans were more interested in abortion restrictions, while only 11 percent were less interested. Sixty-six percent said their views on abortion restrictions were the same as they were five or ten years ago. Since polls have consistently shown considerable support for laws such as parental notification, informed consent, and unborn victims legislation, the Zogby poll confirms Americans are moving in the direction of ensuring that sensible limits are placed on legalized abortion.”

Fra samme artikel – tal fra en Washington Post/ABC-meningsmåling i oktober sidste år:

“Other recent polls also confirm a majority of Americans have a pro-life perspective. An October 2003 Washington Post-ABC News poll, timed to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the papacy of Pope John Paul II, found a majority of Americans and Catholics believe abortion is ‘morally unacceptable.’ Some 58 percent of all respondents said they thought ‘abortion, when the mother’s life is not in danger’ was morally unacceptable. About 66 percent of Catholics agreed. Only 39 percent of Americans and 30 percent of Catholics found abortion morally acceptable.” [Kilde: Prolife.com via Zogby.com
