The Voice of the People

According to a poll conducted by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, only 44% of persons aged 18 to 29 know what the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade was actually about. But asked if they believed the Court should overturn the case, 68% said no. That is, a goodly number of young people don't know what the case is about, but they're quite sure it shouldn't be overturned.

It's remarkable the number of people who have very strong opinions about things they know nothing about, or even about things they can't possibly have an opinion about.
