In one of my poly sci classes as an undergrad, the professor asked for a show of hands as to who thought Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision virtually imposing abortion on demand everywhere in the U.S., was rightly decided.  There were about 50 students of both sexes in the class, ranging from early 20s to late 50s.  

Every single person in the class, except for me, raised his/her hand to show approval of Roe v. Wade.  The professor, who was what we might call a "conservative," was shocked.  So was I.  He then asked who opposed the decision.  I was the only person to raise a hand.  And the university I attended was considered "conservative."  

It was then that I realized there is little hope for our country; we await a major chastisement.

Yikes. 50 to 1 is pretty staggering.

Although I have seen polls that show that when clarified, the majority of "pro-choice" Americans favor some restriction on abortion, so actually disagree with Roe v Wade. Many seen to be misinformed as to how radical the decision was.
