A new survey released on Tuesday conducted annually by Marist in partnership with the Knights of Columbus shows that the majority of Americans want abortion to be restricted. Seventy-five percent of Americans across political affiliations—Republicans, Democrats, and Independents—want abortions to be limited to the first trimester and an equal percentage oppose tax-payer funding of abortions overseas.
“Two-thirds of Americans want Roe revisited to allow for state regulation of abortion or to ban it altogether,” adds Knights of Columbus CEO Carl Anderson in a statement.
Results of the Marist poll are even more encouraging than Gallup’s May 2018 poll that confirmed 53 percent of Americans oppose all or most abortions.
Incidentally, the March for Life, an annual pro-life event, is this Saturday, January 19, in Washington, D.C., with Vice President Mike Pence giving the address at the 37th annual Rose Dinner.
