In a recent opinion poll by Emerson College Polling, former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama, Roy Moore leads Democrat challenger Doug Jones by a double digit 10 point lead less than a month before the Alabama special election for the U.S. Senate set for December 12, 2017. This is in spite of the allegations against him where a woman said over 40 years ago he attempted to have a relationship with her when she was 14. The woman’s mother disputes a main contention in her daughter’s account.
Conservatives remain suspicious of the timing of the allegations becoming public during the special election season and believe they are politically motivated.
To understand the opinion of those answering the poll questions in regards to the allegations, in number 17 they were asked:
“As you may have heard, multiple women recently came forward to accuse Roy Moore of making sexual advances on them when they were underage. Do these new revelations affect who you will vote for in the Senate special election?”
Moore’s opponent, pro-abortion advocate Doug Jones, says in a MSNBC interview with Chuck Todd that, “I’m a firm believer that a woman should have the freedom to choose what happens to her own body.” Perhaps Jones hasn’t considered that a preborn girl in her mother’s womb has her own body with a blood type that can be different then her mother’s and should be afforded the same consideration.
When pro-abortion advocates such as Jones call a pre-born girl a “fetus” they do so with the intent of selling the public the idea that they are less then human. But, fetus is defined as, “[A]developing human from usually two months after conception to birth.”
Moore’s position on abortion is, “Federal funding for Planned Parenthood or any form of abortion should be stopped.”
President Trump, who is pro-life, won Alabama in the 2016 presidential election against Hillary Clinton by more then 28%. The largest margin since 1972.
