500 (of the 700,000+) doctors in the U.S. agree with a radical anti-abortion claim.


Yes, you read that right: that's less than half of one percent.

I don't think those petition numbers say what the anti-abortion activists who cite them desperately want them to.

Then again, maybe they're just aware of the critical thinking skills of their intended audience.

It's actually less than one tenth of one percent. Don't overstate their power.

I was trying to be generous! I do find it quite amusing the number of people who uncritically point to the petition numbers and say "look at all the doctors who agree!".
