Take the Roe IQ Test January 16, 2008

Posted by Daniel Downs in abortion, law, news, Roe v Wade.

Roe IQ TestThe 35th anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision happens on 22 January. The test reveals how much test takers actually know about the law. I’m ashamed to admit that I flunked the Roe test. Nevertheless, I did learn more about its finer points, which by the way is the purpose of the Roe IQ test site.

One of the trick questions was: “According to the CDC, about how many abortions have been performed in the United States since the Roe decision in 1973?” How many people do you know who read anything put out by the US Health Dept.’s Center of Disease Control? I hear someone asking, so what is the answer? I do not approve of cheating on tests, but the answer is 40.9 million. Don’t tell anyone I told you.

After answering questions about abortion law, the next page asks some questions about test taker demographics. This page is followed by another giving you the opportunity to send yourself and your friends an email about the test. Following that page is a new page with test results.

I learned several surprising facts about Roe law including who may perform an abortion, whether sex selection is allowed, and the age when parental consent is required.

If interested in taking the test or learning more about Roe v Wade law, go to the Roe IQ website.

Did you know that more than 40,000 test-takers have taken the Roe IQ Test (http://www.roeiqtest.com/ui/), and most of them flunked. (http://www.citizenlink.org/CLNews/A000006308.cfm), earning an average score of only 58 percent. What makes this more striking is that polling indicates that the more people understand Roe, the less likely they are to support it.

January 22—marked the 35th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade ruling. Many of the people who will vote in this year’s presidential election weren’t even alive when the ruling was handed down. Isn’t it time that we refreshed our collective memory about this decision that has enabled the premature deaths of tens of millions of children?
