Poll: Americans back 20-week abortion ban


A new national poll finds that over half of Americans approve of the HHS mandate rollback and 62% support the 20-week abortion ban.

McLaughlin & Associates conducted the survey of 1,000 likely voters (33% Republicans, 36% Democrats, 31% Independents) on Friday, October 13, 2017. The margin of error is ±3.1 percent. The poll found:

51.5 percent support the Trump administration’s rollback of the HHS preventative services mandate, which forces employers to be complicit in the provision of abortion-inducing drugs regardless of their deeply held religious and moral objections. 36.3 percent said they were opposed.

62.2 percent support legislation limiting abortions after twenty weeks, or five months of pregnancy, a point by which science shows unborn children can feel painOnly 25.3 percent were opposed.
