Poll: More Dems Identify as Pro-Life After New York Passed Extreme Abortion Bill
A new poll has found that more Democrats identify as “pro-life” after New York enacted an extreme law allowing for abortions for any reason up until birth.
A Marist poll conducted for the Catholic organization, Knights of Columbus found that “The number of Democrats now identifying as pro-life is 34 percent, up from 20 percent last month, while the number identifying as pro-choice fell from 75 percent to 61 percent.”
The poll also found that 71 percent of Americans believe abortion in the third trimester should “generally be illegal.”
The director of the Marist Poll, Barbara Carvalho credits the opinion shift to the states enacting radical abortion legislation enabling abortion up until birth.
Those developments “have not gone unnoticed by the general public,” Carvalho said.
“In just one month, there has been a significant increase in the proportion of Americans who see themselves as pro-life and an equally notable decline in those who describe themselves as pro-choice,” she said.
Vermont is also in the process of legalizing abortion without restrictions.
Last week, lawmakers passed a disturbing abortion bill which claims every person has a right to an abortion for any reason and strips unborn children of any rights.
The bill passed in the House 106 to 36 and states “Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry a pregnancy to term, give birth to a child, or to have an abortion.”
It also does not recognize the personhood of an unborn child.
“A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus shall not have independent rights under Vermont law,” states the law.
