Do millennials know anything about historical atrocities? It was bad enough that only 4 in 10 millennials understood the Holocaust, but now a new poll shows that as many as 57% of millennials know little to nothing about Roe v. Wade, the ghastly SCOTUS decision that made abortion a constitutional right by judicial fiat.
According to a Democratic pollster, millennials do not know what Roe v. Wade is about, or when abortion was legalized, with many believing it happened after the American Revolution, nearly 200 years before it was decided.
The claim is supported by a 2013 study from the Pew Research Center finding that 57% adults aged 18 to 29 had no knowledge that Roe v. Wade legalized abortion. Not only did it legalize abortion, as noted by LifeNews, it turned America into one of the most liberal countries in the world on the issue:
When Roe v. Wade was handed down, many abortion supporters stated that abortion would be “safe, legal, and rare.” That has proved itself to not be the case. Even some abortion advocates say the poorly-written case has no constitutional basis, and its loose language has opened the door to widespread abortions.
Because of Roe and its companion case, Doe v. Bolton, the United States is one of only seven countries in the world that permits elective abortions past 20 weeks — a fact confirmed by the Washington Post fact checker.
