Massive New Poll: 56% of Canadians Oppose Morgentaler Order of Canada

July 22, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A random telephone poll of Canadian households with 13,324 respondents conducted between July 17-21, 2008 has revealed that 55.8% of Canadians oppose the awarding of the Order of Canada to abortionist Henry Morgentaler.

The national poll commissioned by Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) and just completed, by KLRVU polling has a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 1.5%. The data is accurate 19 times out of 20. A breakdown of votes by province is provided.

Hard to argue with a poll with this many respondents.

Here's the breakdown by province. The percentages are those against Morgentaler receiving the award.

BC: 55%
AB: 64%
SK: 65%
MB: 66%
ON: 58%
QC: 47%
NB: 62%
NS: 68%
PEI: 67%
NL : 64%
NWT /NT : 57%
YK : 57%

If that many people oppose Morgentaler receiving the award, how deep is the support for abortion in this country? Sure, the majority want some form of legal abortion.

It doesn't mean they're all that keen about it.

This says to me that the Order of Canada was bestowed by a bunch of elitists who are completely out of touch with the pulse of the country.


Birth Pangs could only dismiss the poll results.

Is that the best they could come up with?

They know full well that most people do not answer telephone surveys, regardless of the subject. Not to mention that a significant number of Canadians have their phones set on their voicemail/answering machines. Others won't answer their phones because it's supper. Or they're busy doing the dishes.

A geographically weighted poll with 13 000 respondents cannot be lightly dismissed.

In light of all the online poll results showing mass opposition to Morgentaler's award, this shows that Morgentaler is not the hero the pro-aborts make him out to be.
