I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)Though the majority of American voters want abortion restrictions, Congress doesn't seem to care.

In consideration of the U.S. Supreme Court agreeing to hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, the case concerning Mississippi's HB 1510 law banning abortions from being committed past 15 weeks for any reason other than physical medical emergencies or severe fetal abnormalities, the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List conducted a poll among voters.

"We found that there's a strong coalition of support for significant limits on abortion," relays SBA List spokeswoman Prudence Robertson. "The majority of voters oppose unrestricted abortion on demand throughout pregnancy, which is what Roe allows for."

Because the Dobbs case could overturn Roe, Robertson believes the poll results should send a message to Congress, especially as it considers legislation that would permit abortion through all nine months of pregnancy with taxpayers footing the bill.

"53% of likely voters are more likely to vote for a Republican candidate who supports a 15-week limit on abortion, like the Dobbs case, versus 28% of voters who prefer a Democratic candidate who supports abortion on demand through birth," Robertson reports. "It shows that public opinion is on our side and that the American people want to humanize our laws."

The study also shows Independents favor the life side of the issue by a 54%-18% margin.

While congressional Democrats want to expand abortion, states have passed almost 90 pro-life laws so far this year.
