A question to ponder as you read today's media coverage of the partial-birth abortion ban:

If more than 90% of all Americans believe that partial-birth abortion should be illegal, why do most reports carry a half-dozen quotes from people who oppose the ban, and only 1-2 quotes-- further down in the story-- from people who support it?
