NEW HAVEN, Conn., July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ – Americans remain strongly supportive of abortion restrictions, despite this summer’s Supreme Court decision overturning a Texas law that mandated that doctors have admitting privileges at a local hospital and that abortion clinics be held to the same standards as other outpatient surgery centers.
Strong majorities also oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, support the right of conscientious objectors to opt out of abortions, and would generally limit it – at most – to the first trimester. In most cases, a majority, or substantial minority of those who call themselves pro-choice agree.
“The Americans people have spoken clearly on their desire for abortion restrictions, less taxpayer funding of it, and common sense regulations on this industry to protect women’s health,” said Knights of Columbus CEO Carl Anderson. “Our courts, politicians, candidates and parties should heed this consensus.”
