7 in 10 Americans Want Significant Limits on Abortion; DeSantis Committed to Protecting Unborn Children & Mothers
Washington, D.C. – As Vice President Kamala Harris heads to Florida tomorrow to promote the Biden administration’s pro-abortion agenda, Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America issued the following statement:
“The Biden-Harris agenda of abortion on demand up to the moment of birth is deeply out of touch in the Dobbs era. The strong majority of Americans reject pro-abortion extremism,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Fifteen states including Florida now have strong laws in effect protecting unborn children and their mothers, with the potential to save more than 125,000 lives a year, and more are poised to follow. Bold pro-life governors like Ron DeSantis who are committed to signing protections for unborn children and their mothers into law – such as stopping brutal abortions when unborn children can feel pain and safeguarding young girls from the exploitative abortion industry – soared to re-election victory by large margins last November.
A new Marist/Knights of Columbus poll released this week confirms nearly seven in 10 Americans believe there should be significant limits on abortion. Key findings include:
- 69% of Americans support limiting abortion to, at most, the first three months of pregnancy.
- Includes 72% of women, 71% of Independents and nearly half of rank-and-file Democrats.
- 91% of Americans support pregnancy centers, which offer vital material, medical and educational support to mothers both during their pregnancy and after their baby is born.
- 60% of Americans oppose using tax dollars to fund abortion domestically, and 78% oppose using tax dollars to fund abortion abroad.
Dannenfelser continued, “Vice President Harris could not have set up a starker contrast between the radical abortion lobby and the compassion and common sense of the American people. We encourage GOP leaders to call out their opponents’ extremism and we will work tirelessly to educate voters during the 2024 election cycle.”
