Another poll finds majority want most or all abortions banned

More national polls are confirming that Americans want all or most abortions banned. The news may come as a shock to some who see the weekly protests of pro-choice activists reflecting that of the country as a whole.

A new Trafalgar Group poll shows 57.6% of Americans believe all abortions should be banned or banned when an unborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected.

According to the survey (download the PDF here), 13.9% of those polled say abortions should be illegal except in very rare cases to save the mother’s life, another 24% of Americas think 99% of abortions should be illegal except in cases of rape, incest or to save the mother’s life, and 19.7 percent of abortions support banning abortions when an unborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected at approximately 6 weeks.

With the majority of Americans taking a pro-life position to support banning abortions (which requires Roe v. Wade to be overturned) that leaves a minority of Americans supporting abortion. Just 42.4% of Americans support legalized abortion with 30.8 percent saying they only want abortion legal in the first and second trimester and only 11.6% of Americans saying they support abortions up to birth — the position of Joe Biden and the Democrat Party.

Views by party affiliation

Breaking the results down by party, Trafalgar found 35.9% of Democrats took one of the three pro-life positions, 81.5% of Republicans take a pro-life position and 54.6% of independents have one of the three pro-life positions.

Looking at results by sex, 55.2% of women took one of the three pro-life positions supporting banning all or most aboritons as did 60.2 percent of men. Some 55.7% of black Americans and 63.6% of Hispanic Americans favored banning all or most abortions.

The poll falls right in line with 11 other recent polls confirming Americans are pro-life on abortion.

In May, a Fox News poll found Americans are pro-life on a 54-44% margin and majorities want abortions banned after either 6 weeks or 15 weeks.

But even in January, well before the leaked draft of the Supreme Court ruling, a Marist poll found 71% of Americans want aboritons to be made illegal or for more limits to be placed on them, all essentially supporting overturning Roe.
