How can a poll which only has the backing of 49% of the population be used as support for this idea?

I think the idea of using a poll is preposterous, anyway. We don't ask the general public at what point they think a malignant tumour becomes untreatable.

America needs a healthy dose of pragmatic thinking, especially when it comes to matters of sex and reproduction. Although here in the U.K., you can be protected as a homophobic if you shroud it in religion.
