Americans Show Rising Support for Abortion Rights: Poll
Date:7/27/2011

ericans support."

Despite clear divisions along partisan lines, poll responses on the issue of abortion were relatively similar for males and females, and responses did not vary much between different age groups.

Those on the pro-choice side of the debate said the survey reflects most Americans' stance on the issue.

"It is telling that this new poll shows an increase in the support for legal abortion at the same time we are going through the most aggressive legislative assaults on women's health and rights in a generation," said Tait Sye, a spokesman for Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

"It's clear that a strong majority of Americans support legal abortion, oppose new laws restricting access to abortion, and oppose efforts to overturn Roe v. Wade, which has been settled law for nearly 40 years," Sye said.

But Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League, said, "That one in three Americans is now ready to eliminate state funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion chain, shows how effective the pro-life campaign to defund Planned Parenthood has been.

"Abortion law in the United States is clearly out of step with the beliefs of most Americans," he added. "A majority say that abortion should not be allowed after the first 16 weeks of pregnancy, but not one state has enacted such a restriction. But I think we'll see that change soon."

Although the new poll's demographics are similar to the 2009 poll, the most recent study was done exclusively online, which can have some implications for sensitive topics such as abortion.
