A new poll shows that Americans are moving toward a consensus on abortion. A few short years ago, abortion rights activists were boasting that the majority of folks in this country favored unrestricted choice for abortions. Lately all the polls have gone the other way and the majority of Americans now favor significant restrictions on abortion. Here are some of the key findings of the poll sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and Marist Institute:

  • 86% of Americans would significantly restrict abortion.
  • 60% of Americans would limit abortion to cases of rape, incest or the life of a mother — or not allow it at all.
  • 53% of Americans believe abortion does more harm than good to a woman in the long term.
  • 79% of Americans support conscience exemptions on abortion for health care workers. This includes 64% of those who identify as strongly pro-choice.
  • 69% of Americans think that it is appropriate for religious leaders to speak out on abortion.
  • 59% say religious leaders have a key role to play in the abortion debate.

Response: Even Pres. Obama who has championed abortion rights for his entire career was seen today promising Pope Benedict that he would do everything he could to reduce abortions in America. Probably the first time I have agreed with the President on anything. Well maybe not, but I sure can’t remember the last time .           *Top
