New National Poll: 53% of Americans Oppose 99% of All Abortions

The results of a new national poll reveal 53 percent of Americans take one of three positions opposing all or virtually all abortions.

The National Right to Life Committee commissioned a nationwide survey from the Polling Company, a firm that conducted a survey February 28-March 3 with 1,000 respondents and a 3.1% margin of error.

The poll found 47 percent of Americans identify themselves as pro-life while 49 percent say they “pro-choice” on abortions. But when respondents are asked to identify exactly where they stand on abortion, using a list of six different positions, those two labels are shown as not representative of where Americans really stand on abortion.

Most Americans oppose abortion for most reasons, the Polling Company survey found:

Abortion should be prohibited in all circumstances: 11%
Abortion should be legal only to save the life of the mother: 14%
Abortion should be legal only to save the life of the mother, or in cases of rape or incest: 28%

Abortion should be legal for any reason but not after the first three months of pregnancy: 20%
Abortion should be legal for any reason but not after the first 6 months of pregnancy:
Abortion should be legal for any reason at any time during a woman’s pregnancy: 12%

    There is no percentage for the second to last one. It looks like 15% judging from the math.
