A recent poll by CBS News shows most Americans want stricter limits on abortion, or they want abortion ended altogether.
Pollsters asked people if abortion should be generally available to those who want it, available but under stricter limits than it is now, or not permitted at all.
Overall, 31% said abortion needed stricter limits, and 24% said abortion should not be permitted at all.
In other words, 55% of Americans surveyed believe abortion ought to be either completely illegal or legal under fewer circumstances than it currently is.
Forty-two percent said they would not be able to support a candidate who doesn’t share their views on abortion.
Interestingly, the survey under-represented Republicans. Democrats who responded to the CBS survey outnumbered Republicans by about 37%. In light of that, it’s possible that the percentage of Americans who want abortion restricted or abolished actually is higher than these polling numbers reflect.
This is just another poll demonstrating that Americans don’t support abortion on demand.
These numbers just go to show that slowly but surely we are winning the fight to protect innocent human life.
