(POLL) 58% of Americans want Roe v. Wade abortion ruling to stay in place

The following is an excerpt from Gallup News.

Americans remain largely opposed to overturning Roe v. Wade, as a steady 58% majority believe that the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling that recognized abortion as a constitutional right should stand, while 35% want it to be reversed.

These sentiments are essentially unchanged since 2019.

Dating back to 1989, support for reversing the decision has averaged 32%, while opposition has averaged 59%.

The latest findings are from a May 2-22 Gallup poll, conducted almost entirely after a draft Supreme Court opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked to the press.

A second, more descriptive question was included in the poll for the first time, in order to be more explicit about what overturning Roe v. Wade would mean for U.S. abortion policy.

The question states that if the ruling were to be overturned, it would mean abortion rights are not protected by the Constitution and “each state could set its own laws to allow, restrict or ban abortions.”

More than six in 10 Americans, 63%, think overturning Roe and allowing states to establish their own abortion policies would be a “bad thing,” while 32% say it would be a “good thing.”

Partisans’ opinions are sharply polarized on the issue, with 80% of Democrats, 62% of independents and 31% of Republicans saying they do not want Roe v. Wade overturned.

In contrast, 58% of Republicans, 34% of independents and 15% of Democrats want it reversed.

  1. Even Roe v Wade doesn’t want unilateral abortions. The problems arise with Planned Parenthood v Casey and Doe v Bolton.

  2. Amazing how uninformed–or brainwashed–is the American populace. The “coat-hanger” protesters and their MSM lackeys have been doing a great brainwashing job since abortion will still be available in the USA, only it will not be enshrined in the Constitution where it should not have been in the first place. Let’s put aside the issue of when life begins (personally, I believe it begins at conception when a new set of DNA is formed) and look at the issue of abortion any time, for any reason, including up to birth that the far-left (including HRC) are pushing.. It’s a barbaric practice. It’s inconceivable to think of what happens to an unborn child that can feel pain when it is ripped from its mother’s womb. Why are unborn babies given anesthesia for intra-uterine surgeries if not because they feel pain?

  3. I don’t believe these polls. I read that something like 56% of people think that the mask mandate for air travel should be maintained, but when I had to fly across country for a death in the family, hardly anyone was wearing a mask. I was in Syracuse, Denver, San Francisco, Sonoma County, and Dulles, which together seems a pretty good sample. Maybe 10% of people in some places were wearing masks, and that’s a generous estimate.

    These Roe v. Wade poll results contradict the polling results over a number of years, which indicate that substantial majorities of those polled favor much stricter laws governing abortion. Overturning Roe v. Wade would accomplish that. Perhaps the discrepancy has to do with the questions asked?

  4. If you were to ask the question if abortion should be legal until the 14th or 15th week, I’m sure the results would be different. To me that is a common sense solution which allows for the young teenager who makes a bad choice, as well as the victims of rape or incest to have a 2nd chance in a medically safe environment The all or nothing approach of both the pro-choice and pro-life people really gets nowhere.
    After about 13 week it seems to me that a woman’s body is no longer her exclusive property but is shared with the fetus, but being a male, I defer that distinction to the opposite sex
    . But, I do believe the question should be decided legislatively not by the Courts. Perhaps the Court could defer the decission for several months to allow time for that to happen.

    1. I’m sorry, but I respectfully disagree. There is no excuse to take a life.
      We are to protect all human life. It is our natural instinct to protect life.
      God said, Do not murder because it is a bad action. It has huge emotional and psychological consequences. Abortion has been promoted as a cure to the “problem”. Yet I do not know one woman that doesn’t regret that decision and that doesn’t still suffer from her choice.
      His grace is sufficient for the young teen who finds herself pregnant. She might chose to give that baby to the couple that is unable to conceive. And the woman who was raped may find that the gift of the child is the miracle that changes her life for the better.
      God makes good out of evil. He gives us the strength and grace to endure. Adoption is a great option if a woman is unable to keep her child.
      I want Roe vs Wade out of our Constitution. I’m sure not every state will ban abortion but I can hope for that day to come.
      I pray we come to repentance and faith again as a nation and know the love and fear of the Lord. He is good. No life is a mistake. We are all His creations. ❤️

  5. Rowe was bad Constitutional law from the get-go, invented out of whole cloth by activist judges. There is NO right to kill unborn children, or to declare unborn human beings as “n0n-persons”, enshrined in our Constitution, just as there was no right to declare African-Americans “non-persons” even though the US Supreme Court decided that in 1854. That decision was eventually reversed by a later Court, just as Rowe should be. Our Constitution emphatically declares that no legal actions specifically declared to be within Federal purview are reserved solely to the individual states.

  6. Some people are afraid of violence by those that seem to have no concern for abortions being safe, legal and rare. Since now you have the morning after pill and the monthly pill in widespread use there should be almost no need for any abortions at all.
