Pro-Choice Media

"When will our media reflect America on abortion?" asks William McGurn at The Wall Street Journal now that a Gallup poll has reported that half of America is pro-life.

"When will our media reflect America on abortion?" asks William McGurn at The Wall Street Journal now that a Gallup poll has reported that half of America is pro-life. Aware of the difference between saying something is wrong and that it should be outlawed—according to Gallup, half of Americans say abortion is wrong, but that they do not necessarily support outlawing it—McGurn was surprised by media from NPR to Slate that gave speculative reasons as to why the Gallup poll doesn't reflect the "true" outlook on abortion in America. "Overall, Gallup's findings about Americans and abortion reflect less a political prescription than a sensibility," says McGurn.
