With tens of thousands of pro-life Americans set to gather in Washington, D.C., for the annual March For Life Friday, an annual poll released this week shows precisely where Americans stand on abortion.
While abortion has been considered the leading cause of death worldwide for the fifth consecutive year, the survey found 66% of respondents back limitations on abortion, with the majority also supporting capping the procedure at three months of pregnancy. Just 29% of Americans indicated they believe abortion should be legally permissible at any point in a pregnancy, according to National Review.
Adding to these importing findings, Americans also overwhelmingly—88%—believe it’s possible to have laws protecting both a woman and her unborn child. Overall, the percentage calling themselves pro-life is at 40%, up one percentage point from the previous year’s polling.
“This year’s poll makes clear that a consistent consensus of Americans supports legal restrictions on abortion, and an overwhelming majority support pregnancy resource centers, which assist mothers and their children in greatest need,” Kelly said in a statement. “I’m very proud that our Knights across the U.S. and Canada have raised more than $7 million to support these vital centers through our ASAP, or Aid and Support After Pregnancy program.”
