With the March for Life taking place in Washington this weekend, and today being the 49th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, a new poll from Marist and the Knights of Columbus found that support for unfettered abortion is not so strong as liberals would have us believe.
The poll found that while only 12% of American adults think abortion should be completely banned, only 17% think it should be allowed at any time during a pregnancy. A large 71% want more restrictions, not fewer: they think abortion should be heavily limited and only allowed under certain circumstances. 63% oppose allowing abortion drugs by mail order, which Biden’s FDA just approved. 54% oppose taxpayer-funded abortions in the US, despite Biden’s attempts to reinstate them; and a whopping 73% oppose using our tax money to fund abortions overseas.
So when you hear pro-abortion activists accuse pro-lifers of being on the “wrong side of history,” remember that 49 years after the tragic Roe v. Wade decision, the majority of Americans still oppose their view and opposition is growing. It's the abortion supporters who are not only on the wrong side of history, they’re on the wrong side of life.
