84% Oppose Freedom of Conscience??????

A few weeks back, we brought you the story of Neal Noeson, a pharmacist who is under legal attack for refusing to fill a prescription for oral contraceptives. Sensing the gravity of this issue, CBS has conducted a poll designed to show a public consensus (take note, judges!) that pharmacists must provide whatever legal prescriptions their customers request.

I think this poll is horribly flawed because of its simplistic language, and if you frame the issue the way I have entitled this post, you may even have a statistic result that is skewed totally the other way. I think the numbers are closer to the middle, especially because of the demand for contraception. This is a complete mockery of a poll.

Mirror of Justice has some worthwhile commentary on this poll.
