Turns out Democrats are wrong once again.
Not only do Americans not support abortion overwhelmingly as Democrats like to say, the majority of Americans have believed that abortion should be illegal, and have for decades.
In 40 straight Gallup polls over a span of 24 years, a majority of Americans have said that they believe abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances.
In the latest Gallup survey examining the issue, which was conducted May 1-10, 53 percent said they believe abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances.
The Gallup survey asks this question: “Do you think abortion should be legal under any circumstances, legal only under certain circumstances, or illegal in all circumstances?”
If the respondent says they believe abortion should be “legal only under certain circumstances,” Gallup asks this follow-up question: “Do you think abortion should be legal in most circumstances or only in a few circumstances?”
Since September 1994, Gallup has asked these questions in 40 polls. In every one of those 40 polls, the combined percentage of people who said they believe abortion should be illegal in “all circumstances” or legal “only in a few circumstances” has exceeded 50 percent.
The percentage who said that abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances hit a high of 63 percent in the poll that Gallup conducted on Aug. 12-13, 1997. In that survey, 22 percent said they thought abortion should be legal under any circumstances, 12 percent said it should be legal under most circumstances, 48 percent said it should be legal only in a few circumstances and 15 percent said it should be illegal in all circumstances.
Thus, in that survey, 63 percent (48 percent plus 15 percent) said abortion should be illegal in all but a few or all cases.
The lowest percentage of respondents who have told Gallup they believe abortion should be illegal in most or all circumstances was 51 percent—the percentages who took that position in surveys conducted Sept. 6-7, 1994 and Sept. 22-24, 1995.
Since 1995, the percentage has never dropped that low again.
In the latest survey in which Gallup asked the question, which was conducted May 1-10 of this year, 29 percent said they thought abortion should be legal under any circumstances, 14 percent said they thought it should be legal under most circumstances, 35 percent said they thought it should be legal only in a few circumstances, and 18 percent said they thought it should be illegal in all circumstances.
In the 40 polls in which Gallup has asked this question over the last 24 years, 57.58 percent of Americans on average have said they believe abortion should be illegal in all or all but a few cases.
Pro-abortion activists are in a complete state of hysteria.
After being sucker punched by the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court defending the right of crisis pregnancy centers to operate unimpeded by the politics of their adversaries.
They then they got hit with a right cross when news broke that Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring, thus giving President Trump the right to choose a pro-life replacement.
Following Kennedy’s announcement, baby killing Democrats proclaimed that if abortion were made illegal, they would simply murder the baby with a coat hanger if necessary.
Senator Elizabeth Warren bellowed that Justice Kennedy’s retirement means that “women’s health, equal marriage, and civil rights are all at risk.”
Jay Michaelson at the Daily Beast went off the rails saying, “The judicial apocalypse is here, and there’s nothing Democrats can do to stop it.”
Molly Redden almost had a nervous breakdown, telling Huffington Post readers of a woman who is preparing for the worst, saying, “We’d use a coat hanger, like our grandmothers did.”
Daily Beast writer Erin Gloria Ryan sounded like she is one step removed from the asylum, opining, “Motherhood, in the eyes of the American right, is a blessed consequence of a sinful act of pleasure-seeking (or love).”
Whoopi Goldberg is so far gone that no asylum would admit her. She has a message for pro-lifers: “Get Out of My Vagina.”
She speaks with authority. Goldberg had her first abortion at age 14, having six or seven by the age of 25. Six or seven.
As well, failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gushed over the pro-abortion activists who repealed Ireland’s legal protection for unborn babies during remarks to Irish college students.
Clinton used the opportunity to recognize the “grassroots” pro-abortion movement, and went so far as to say legalization of the slaughter of the unborn for convenience of women too lazy to use birth control, “inspiring.”
“Anyone who cares about preserving a democratic future must recognize that we need to do a better job of making democracy work for young people,” Clinton said. “I’ve also seen what’s possible when young people participate, and make your voices heard. The Irish abortion referendum was an inspiring sight.”
“Airports were mini-rallies with cheering and colourful banners greeting citizens who came as far away as from Japan, Australia and, of course, America,” she went on. “On the day of the vote one of the strictest laws in the world was overturned with nearly 87 percent of 18- to 25-year-olds voting ‘yes.’”
In short, Democrats are losing the argument that it is a right for a woman to slaughter a baby to avoid the consequences of their actions.
When studies show the main reason for abortion has nothing to do with “Women’s Health,” but is instead merely for the convenience of harlots too lazy to use birth control, that probably has a lot to do with why people are generally against abortion on demand. See details here.
