Poll: 86 Percent of U.S. Wants Abortion Restrictions

Friday, July 10, 2009 1:45 PM

The American people continue to move to the pro-life perspective on abortion according to the latest Moral Compass survey by the Knights of Columbus and Marist Poll.

The poll mirrored findings of other recent surveys, showing that more Americans identify as pro-life than as pro-choice, and that the vast majority of Americans favor restricting abortion.

Among the key findings:

# 86% of Americans would significantly restrict abortion.

# 60% of Americans would limit abortion to cases of rape, incest or to save the life of a mother – or would not allow it at all.

# 53% of Americans believe abortion does more harm than good to a woman in the long term.

# 79% of Americans support conscience exemptions on abortion for health care workers. This includes 64% of those who identify as strongly pro-choice.

# 69% of Americans think that it is appropriate for religious leaders to speak out on abortion.

# 59% say religious leaders have a key role to play in the abortion debate.

# 80% of Americans believe that laws can protect both the health of the woman and the life of the unborn. This includes 68% of those who identified as strongly pro-choice.

Additionally, the data showed that since October nearly every demographic sub-group had moved toward the pro-life position except for non-practicing Catholics and men under 45 years of age.

Independents and liberals showed the greatest shift to the pro-life position since October, while Democrats were slightly less likely to be pro-life now than they were in October.

“The data shows that the American people are placing an ever increasing value on human life,” said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson. “Far from the great divide that most people think exists when it comes to the abortion debate, there is actually a great deal of common ground. Most Americans are unhappy with the unrestricted access to abortion that is the legacy of Roe

vs. Wade, and pundits and elected leaders should take note of the fact that agreement on abortion need not be limited to the fringes of the debate and issues like adoption or pre-natal care. The American people have reached a basic consensus, and that consensus is at odds with the unrestricted access to abortion that is the legacy of Roe.”

The survey of 1,223 Americans was conducted May 28 – 31 and has a margin of error of +/-3%.

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

Yeah, but do the fictional 86% that want more restrictions on abortion want to be held financially liable to support 100% of the unwanted children from pregnancy til they turn at least 18?

I think their plan is to open a national chain of Dickensian orphanages, so that the kids can be offered out as cheap labour for their mansions -pot washers, chimney sweeps and cigar lighters - there's a bit of a shortage of chimney these days.

They should all be sentenced to a crash course in reading Dickens novels. That would teach 'em - in more ways than one ;)

All you libs are seriously deluded. You see, my lib buds took part in that survey and expressed their leaning that women's reproductive rights be restricted to save the unborn so that we can later have more productive citizens.

:yes:


Wishing you ten-fold that which you wish upon all others.

Well who can argue that method of gettin-sum?

Everyone knows if you get a liberal-chick knocked-up, you get out for like 300 bucks..... some will even assert their "independence" and pay it them self.
