PENNY NANCE — In a recent article, NARAL Pro-Choice America released a poll making the startling claim that nearly 70 percent of registered voters say the government should not restrict access to abortion. Although this is a convenient narrative, it's less than representative of American opinion, and I suspect they know it. What do Americans think?
