abortion license is not widely supported.
Abortion advocates claim that Roe enjoys broad public support and some
recent polls seem to provide evidence for this claim. But most polls don't explain Roe's extreme abortion license and some
misrepresent it. For example, a 2016 Pew
Research Center poll claims 69% of Americans favor Roe v. Wade and 28% oppose it.1 But the poll
wrongly describes Roe as establishing
"a woman's constitutional right to an abortion, at least in the first three
months of pregnancy." The fact is, Roe made abortion legal through all 9
months of pregnancy and for virtually any reason.2
The vast majority
of Americans oppose the policy of nearly unlimited abortion dictated by Roe, and most believe abortion should
not be legal for the reasons it is most often performed. A June 2018 Gallup poll shows that 72% of
Americans said abortion should be illegal in the second trimester and 87% said
abortion should be illegal in the last trimester.3 A 2018 Marist
poll shows that 51% of women said abortion should never be permitted (9%) or
permitted only in cases of rape, incest, and to save the woman's life (42%).4
So why do polls
show a majority of Americans favoring Roe
v. Wade? Because they don't really
know what Roe did.
