Biden, Schumer Pushing Extreme Bill to Eliminate Pro-Life State Laws Nationwide
Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony list (SBA List) released a poll of likely voters conducted by OnMessage Inc. that finds a strong majority of Americans in key battleground states reject abortion on demand until the moment of birth and support a 15-week limit on abortion. The survey of 1200 likely voters in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin was conducted May 2-6, 2022.
The polling comes ahead of a U.S. Senate vote Wednesday on the so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act,” radical legislation that would expand abortion until the moment of birth by preventing enforcement of existing laws that protect unborn children at the state and federal level and block the passage of new pro-life laws. The Biden administration has doubled down on support for the bill.
A memo on the poll’s key poll findings notes that:
- 50% of likely voters are more likely to vote for a Republican candidate who supports a 15-week limit on abortion, versus 30% of voters who prefer a Democratic candidate who supports unlimited abortion up until the moment of birth.
- 51% of likely voters say abortion policy should be decided by the people through state legislatures, not unelected judges.
- 49% of likely voters in the battleground hold a pro-life view.
SBA List previously announced it will score against the bill and sent a memo to Capitol Hill detailing the bill’s extreme provisions.
SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser commented, saying:
“Pro-abortion Democrats are dramatically out of touch with the American people, who overwhelmingly reject abortion on demand until birth. The deeply unpopular Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act would wipe away nearly all common ground pro-life protections in the states, including limits on painful late-term abortion which the people strongly support, and it is doomed to fail.
“At just 15 weeks, an unborn child can feel pain, and the United States is one of very few countries – including China and North Korea – that don’t protect vulnerable children and their mothers at this point. Radical pro-abortion lawmakers who shamefully advocate a ‘right’ to abortion at any time for any reason will soon see the consequences of their extremism at the ballot box.”
SBA List is a network of 900,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
