Wisdom of the Cade takes my suggestion & writes about Roe v. Wade -- results (part 1, anyway) here.

I suggested this topic to Dustin because I was shocked to learn, recently, that only 44% of those under 30 even know what the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade concerns.  (5% thought it had to do with environmental protection. 7% thought it was about school desegregation.)

And most people in America now think abortion -- a woman's right to choose -- is not an important issue, which I guess could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on which side of the ditch you're looking at it from.

Education, according to the Pew Research Center, makes the difference between who understands Roe v. Wade and who does not.
