Polls show declining defense of Roe v. Wade

women regret abortion protester signRoe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized terminating preborn children, isn’t an absolute among Americans - and as a poll shows, shouldn't be among politicians either.

Significant polls by organizations such as Gallup have showed as much as 70 percent of the American public support keeping the abortion ruling in place.

However, Denise Mackura with the Human Family Research Center tells OneNewsNow that the results were different when a Polling Company survey pointed out to people that if Roe v. Wade is repealed, abortion wouldn’t disappear but would simply give states jurisdiction on the issue.

Taking into account the poll's small margin of error, it was nearly a 50-50 split.

“At the very least there was a plurality of people who were in support of getting rid of Roe,” Mackura says, “[They wanted] to seeing it overruled, which is directly contrary to the news that's out there, and particularly around the time of the Supreme Court nomination, we felt it was important for people to know that there's no massive support for Roe v. Wade.”

If indeed that's what America thinks, she says many politicians need to rethink their stance.

“What people have seen is fear among politicians to do anything about Roe v. Wade, to support candidates for office or to support Supreme Court nominees because they were afraid that the people would be against them,” she says.

The Center contends it may be time to reexamine Roe because of the confusion it has caused.

Of the 36 cases that have been brought before the U.S. Supreme Court, only three have reaffirmed the ruling.
