90% of Americans Reject Democrat Position of Abortions Up to Birth

(Life News) Most Americans disagree with the Democratic Party’s views on allowing mothers to have abortions up until birth, a new poll shows.

Only 10% of registered voters support the Democratic Party’s position on abortion access up to 9 months of pregnancy, according to the Harvard CAPS Harris Poll released Friday. The poll surveyed 1,308 registered voters from June 28-29.

Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Women’s Health Protection Act in September 2021, which legalizes abortion up until birth and removes bans on partial-birth abortions. Prominent Democrats such as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi have claimed that such procedures are part of a “woman’s right to choose.” Republican senators and Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin voted against the upper chamber’s attempt to pass the bill in May.

Americans broadly support a state ban on abortion at varying stages of pregnancy, according to the data. The survey showed that 18% of Americans support banning abortion after 23 weeks, 23% support banning it after 15 weeks, 12% support banning it after six weeks, and 37% think states should enact a complete abortion ban except in cases of rape and incest.  (Read More)
