Staten Island, NY - Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented on the CNN Poll released Monday by saying, "I am astonished that CNN could not do a better job in accurately portraying what Roe v. Wade says and doesn't say.  Please hire a new legal team and a new research team before you ask the public another question about abortion." 

The constitutional right found in Roe was not a right to abortion per se. Furthermore, Roe allowed abortion through all nine months, and if the public is going to be asked its opinion on Roe, they should be informed of that.
