New Poll Finds 66% Of Americans Want Pro-Life Laws Limiting Abortion

A new national poll conducted by Marist University reveals that two-thirds of Americans are in support of pro-life laws that place limits on abortions.

The 2024 Knights of Columbus-Marist Poll results indicate that 66% of Americans support placing legal limits on abortion, while nearly 6 in 10 support limiting abortions during the first three months of pregnancy.

The survey, conducted by the Marist Poll, also found that 83% of Americans support pregnancy resource centers, which offer support to mothers both during and after their pregnancy. Additionally, the poll found that two-thirds of Americans believe healthcare professionals with religious objections to abortions should not be legally required to perform them.

This new poll has given insight into the American people’s stance on abortion laws after the Supreme Court’s landmark Dobbs decision. The Marist Poll discovered that most Americans believe abortion should be significantly limited, but with exceptions, such as in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother.

Interestingly, the poll reveals that the majority of Americans are supportive of pregnancy resource centers, which provide valuable assistance to mothers and their children in greatest need. Pregnancy resource centers assist pregnant women in a variety of ways, such as with emotional support, financial resources, baby supplies, and educational classes.

The Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly acknowledged the poll’s findings, stating that the results illustrate the continued consensus of Americans to support legal restrictions on abortion while also highlighting their overwhelming support for pregnancy resource centers.

Furthermore, 86% of respondents believe that laws can protect both the mother and her unborn child. This finding may suggest a growing awareness of the rights of the unborn child among the American people and a willingness to balance the mother’s rights with those of her unborn child.

In conclusion, the Marist Poll has shed much-needed insight into the American people’s stance on abortion laws, revealing a clear trend of support for legal limits on abortion and a growing concern for the rights of unborn children. The poll also highlights a prevalent support for pregnancy resource centers, which assist mothers and their children in need.
