Women boo McCain over Roe v. Wade

Republican Presidential candidate John McCain was booed by a mainly female audience, who had cheered some of his earlier statements, on ABC’s The View, September 11, 2008.

In response to a question on abortion from conservative panelist, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, McCain had said “I believe Roe v. Wade was a very bad decision, it was a bad decision.”  In polls by different organizations over some years now, the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision declaring most laws against abortion unconstitutional has usually been found to have nearly 2:1 support among Americans, but it remains controversial.
