As Democrats in New York and Virginia continue to push for more and more radical forms of abortion, a poll has come out that shows that America isn’t at all in agreement with Democrats, even among those who consider themselves to be pro-abortion.


Recently, New York celebrated a new law that allows them to give babies a lethal injection all the way up to moment before birth. Now Virginia lawmakers are floating the idea that death should be able to come to children not long after birth as well.

According to the Washington Times, The Knights of Columbus commissioned a Marist Poll that found the vast majority of Americans, and even the majority of pro-abortion Americans want there to be restrictions on abortion after the first three months of pregnancy:

The survey found that 81 percent of Americans and 66 percent of those who identify as pro-choice would restrict abortion to – at most – the first three months of pregnancy. Eighty two percent of women agree with that. The pollster says these findings have been consistent for the last eight years.

In addition, 55 percent of American overall agree that “abortion ultimately does a woman more harm than good”; 56 percent of women and 27 percent of pro-choice advocates agree. Six in 10 Americans – including 61 percent of women – say abortion is “morally wrong.” One-third of pro-choice Americans agree.

Another 77 percent overall – including 79 percent of women and 71 percent of pro-choice supporters – say that laws can protect both a mother and her unborn child. Seventeen percent of Americans overall, 15 percent of women, 23 percent of pro-choice identifiers disagree.


This numbers signal an America that isn’t as on board with the act of abortion than Democrats and leftist activist groups proclaim.

At a time when Democrat leaders are literally suggesting to make infanticide legal, this poll is a reminder that America isn’t the cesspool of murderous nonsense it hopes it is.
