Public Opposes More Abortion Restrictions

Posted on the 03 October 2013 by Jobsanger
Public Opposes More Abortion Restrictions In the last few years, the Republicans have tried to impose hundreds of new restrictions on a woman's right to control her own body (including making her own decision on abortion). But in spite of those concerted efforts, and of right-wing fundamentalist anti-choice propaganda, the Republicans find themselves once again opposed to the desires of a significant majority of Americans.
The chart above is made from information provided in a recent Bloomberg News Poll (done between September 20th and 23rd of 1,000 nationwide adults, with a 3.1 point margin of error). It shows that only 22% of Americans think more restrictions are needed on abortion (and another 10% are unsure what to think on the subject), while about 68% of the population opposes more restrictions.
