A new survey released last week by Marist Poll shows that most Americans believe abortion should be either completely illegal or legal only under certain circumstances.

The findings track closely with past surveys by Marist, Gallup, CBS, and other pollsters.

Marist surveyed 1,004 adults from January 4 – January 9, 2022.

The poll found overall, 71% of Americans support restrictions on abortion — in other words, 71% of Americans believe abortion ought to be either completely illegal or legal only in some cases.

The poll also found:

  • 55% of those surveyed consider themselves Pro-Choice.
  • 54% oppose using tax dollars to pay for abortions.
  • 61% of said the U.S. Supreme Court should either prohibit abortion or let states pass their own abortion restrictions.
  • Only 26% of adults under age 40 support abortion on demand.

As we have written time and again, most Americans oppose abortion on demand. — especially in Arkansas.

Seventy-nine percent of Arkansans surveyed last fall said abortion ought to be completely illegal or legal only under certain circumstances, and a growing number of communities in Arkansas have passed resolutions affirming that they are Pro-Life.

Most Arkansans support protections for unborn children.

Protecting the lives of unborn children has always been something that Family Council is committed to. We look forward to continuing protecting the lives of the unborn in the future.
