Poll: Millennials Prefer More Abortion Restrictions, 41 % Opposed to Roe
Millennials “consistently backed a rightward shift in abortion-related policies,” according to a new poll reported by LifeSiteNews.
The survey, released Monday, was commissioned by Students for Life of America and found that 70 percent of respondents “favored some form of limits on abortion.” Forty-two percent were directly opposed to abortion.
“Fifty-six percent also opposed selling abortion pills online or administering them without a physical exam, and when informed that Federally Qualified Health Centers dramatically outnumber Planned Parenthood locations, 48 percent of millennials said they’d rather tax dollars go to the former (just 17 percent still preferred Planned Parenthood).
Notably, just seven percent of respondents answered that abortion should be legal for any reason, throughout all nine months at taxpayer expense, which is the de facto position of the current Democrat Party platform.”
Respondents opinion of Roe vs. Wade changed once they were informed of the full impact of the law.
LifeSite writes, “When initially asked, 40 percent of respondents backed Roe, but their support dropped when informed of its actual impact on the law. Fifty-one percent became opposed after learning it effectively permits abortion through all nine months, and 54 percent after learning it protects the use of abortion as contraception or to eliminate children of a particular sex.”
Overall opposition to Roe went from 12 percent to 41 percent, and women opposed the ruling more than men.
