The cover storyof the June 9 issue of Newsweek was on "The War over Fetal Rights". The online edition features an MSNBC interactive survey poll "What legal rights should fetuses have?" -- at last count, 66% believe a fetus has the same rights accorded to children and adults, as compared to 20% who believe they have same rights, but only after viability outside the womb, and 13% who deny the fetus any rights whatsoever. It's not a "scientifically valid" survey, but with 52007 responses (at the time of this blog) that's got to disturb some Democratic political candidates.
