It was discussed for quite a bit in the paper, at
least the local one received by my parents *grin*.
Actually, it was just covered in the opinion section
by a few pro-lifers who thought that the government
was being entirely unfair and nasty by letting the
survey be published, and that it was all untrue. But
then, it was the opinion section: I wished they'd just
expressed it in a more...polite stance.
