  • From what I'm seeing, most Americans agree with abortion for at least some circumstances. So that begs the question. Is this really what the people want?




    How Americans Really Feel About Abortion: The Sometimes Surprising Poll Results As Supreme Court Overturns Roe V. Wade


    Broad support for abortion rights: Gallup polls show Americans’ support for abortion in all or most cases at 80% in May 2021, only sightly higher than in 1975 (76%), and the Pew Research Center finds 59% of adults believe abortion should be legal, compared to 60% in 1995—though there has been fluctuation, with support dropping to a low of 47% in 2009.
    The share of Americans in Gallup’s poll who say abortion is morally acceptable reached a record high of 47% in May, up from a low of 36% in 2009, and a Quinnipiac poll found support for abortion being legal in all or most cases reached a near-record high in September with 63% support.

    Steady support for Roe: Support for the Supreme Court’s abortion precedent in Roe v. Wade is similar, with a November Quinnipiac poll finding that 63% agree with the court’s ruling; and 72% of respondents in a January Marquette Law School poll and 69% of January CNN poll respondents oppose it being overturned.

    If Roe is overturned: A January CNN poll found a 59% majority want their state to have laws that are “more permissive than restrictive” on abortion if Roe goes away, while only 20% want their state to ban abortion entirely (another 20% want it to be restricted but not banned).

    Strongest support for abortion—within limits: An Associated Press/NORC poll in June found 87% support abortion when the woman’s life is in danger, 84% support exceptions in the case of rape or incest, and 74% support abortion if the child would be born with a life-threatening illness.

    When abortion support drops: The further into the pregnancy, with AP/NORC finding 61% believe abortion should be legal during the first trimester, but only 34% in the second trimester and 19% in the third, and an April Wall Street Journal poll finding more Americans approve of 15-week abortion bans than disapprove.

    Partisan split—but not in all cases: Democrats are statistically far more likely to support abortion rights than Republicans, with Quinnipiac finding in September that only 39% of Republicans believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases versus 89% of Democrats—though 70% and 76% of Republicans support exceptions for rape and incest and when the mother’s life is at risk, respectively.

    The religious support abortion rights—except for White evangelicals: Pew found Americans with religious affiliations are far more likely to oppose abortion than the nonreligious (82% of whom believe abortion should be legal), but with the exception of white evangelical Protestants (77% of whom believe abortion should be illegal), a higher share of every religious group polled—white non-evangelicals, Black Protestants and Catholics—favor abortion rights.

    Gender split—not as big as you might think: Women are slightly more likely to support abortion than men, with Pew finding 62% of women want abortion to be legal versus 56% of men.

    Asian Americans most supportive: Pew’s polling found majorities of every race support abortion being legal, though support was higher among Black (67% believe should be legal) and Asian (68%) respondents than those who are white and Hispanic (57% and 58%, respectively).

    Support drops with age: The Pew poll found support for abortion highest among those ages 18-29 (67% believe should be legal), compared with 61% of those 30-49, 53% of those ages 50-64 and 55% of those ages 65 and up.

    Support increases with more education: Pew found 68% of college grads want it legalized versus 61% of those with some college and 50% with a high school education or less (a Washington Post/ABC poll found a similar correlation).

    Parents less likely to support abortion rights: All In Together’s poll, conducted in September with Lake Research and Emerson College Polling, found 36% of those with children in their house opposed the Texas near-total abortion ban versus 54.9% without kids, and the Post/ABC poll similarly found 58% of parents want the Supreme Court to uphold Roe v. Wade versus 62% of non-parents.

    Cities support more: Those in the Northeast are the most supportive of abortion rights, with the Post/ABC finding 71% there want Roe v. Wade to be upheld versus 58% in the Midwest, 53% in the South and 66% in the West, and urban residents are more likely to support Roe v. Wade (with 69% support) than those in suburban or rural areas (56% and 57%, respectively).

    Support rises with income level: The Post/ABC poll found 59% of those earning less than $50,000 per year wanting the court to uphold the law versus 62% of those making between $50,000-$100,000 and 65% of those earning more than $100,000.

      I'm pretty sure some people were either forced to get the jab or be fired. Essentially forcing some into getting it against their will.

        I don't think anyone was forced to get the jab. Who?

          People were essentially forced into it or lose their job and livelihood, stop playing stupid. There's plenty of videos and testimony on that if you search. But I know you know better.

            They weren't forced. They still had the opportunity to decline. It's not like anyone held them down and stuck a needle in them. They could choose to look for other employment if they didn't agree with what their employer stipulated.


            The employer also has rights, and also the responsibility to provide a safe environment for its workers and the people it serves.

              Yup! My company said get vaccinated or get laid off. Almost every big company had that policy including ESPN. He don't know WTF he talking about.

                  Looks like abortion will be settled on a state by state level.

                  And just like that, the Left knows that men are men, and women are women. The confusion vanished instantly.

                  Major judicial upheaval in America predictably finds play in the Jewish state as parties hone their messages ahead of upcoming election

                  By Israel Today Staff | June 26, 2022 | Topics: Abortion

                  Israel’s outgoing Minister of Health, Nitzan Horowitz, assured everyone on Friday that the Jewish state would not follow America’s lead by reversing the right to abortion.

                  In truth, there is constitutional protection for abortion in Israel. The procedure is not part of the basic health package, and requires a woman to provide sufficient justification to an oversight committee to have it covered by state funds.

                  That being said, the committee that oversees abortions in Israel approves nearly all of the requests it receives, even from couples using the procedure as a form of birth control.

                  Nearly 20,000 abortions are performed in Israel every year, with only 200 requests being denied annually.

                  Horowitz, who is head of the far-left progressive Meretz party, was seeking to further reform the system so that women would no longer need the approval of an oversight committee, and could receive abortions at will as part of the basic health package.

                  Speaking to the Kan public broadcaster, Horowitz went on to caution that if his right-wing opponents win the upcoming national election and are able to form a fully right-wing nationalist government, abortion rights such as they exist in Israel could also come under assault.

                  But the warning sounded like little more than scare-mongering given that current opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahuwas in power at the head of a right-wing government for more than a decade and never made any attempt to restrict abortion in Israel.


                  Judaism and abortion


                  Many Bible-believing supporters of Israel are dismayed that the reborn Jewish state allows abortion at all. Indeed, it would seem anathema to Judaism, which places a high emphasis on protecting life.

                  But Judaism in our modern progressive era takes a rather complicated view on abortion. Recently, however, the situation in America started to get so out of hand that leading rabbis felt compelled to shed some light on the matter.

                  When the New York state legislature determined that abortions there could be carried out up until the moment of birth, the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA) stepped in and said this was wrong.

                  A statement issued by the rabbinical group at the time read:
                  “Jewish law opposes abortion, except in cases of danger to the mother. There is no sanction to permit the abortion of a healthy fetus when the mother’s life is not endangered.”

                  The group’s vice president, Rabbi Daniel Korobkin, went so far as to label abortion as murder, and the fact that it was being made so readily available as a sign of the moral erosion in our societies.

                  please note that Israel is a secular country and religious when they want Christians to put pressure on the Government of send them money.

                  My phag cousin and his man love Tel Aviv gay bars.

                  Sodom & Gammorah all over again… Lot a righteous man offered his daughters to the phags, but the queers wanted man axx!
