Since When!?

Listening to the weekend talking heads programs this past weekend, the spokesperson for the "Family Research Council" came out with a statement that sounds wrong - but I have no way of proving or disproving.

In his comments, discussing the "Right To Marry" issue, he said that the public 'does not want the Supreme Court to decide the right to marriage.' At best this statement can only be accurate for a vocal minority as the polling on this issue does not support his statements.

But he made a secondary comment that I wish would garner more of a discussion. He said that ever since the Roe V. Wade decision was handed down that the right for a woman to have an abortion was a  hot button issue.

Is this true!? If so, why is it that it only seems to have become the political rallying point of the right in the past few years!? I wish a reputable fact-checking source would verify (or refute) that statement. The research I have been able to find does not offer any evidence of the positions they espouse, the right-leaning websites seem to support him - the left seems to refute him.

Wherever you are today, I hope that when you make a controversial comment, that you will supprt it with evidence - and not leave us hanging.
