One of the abortion lobby’s most effective arguments in support of abortion is simply not true.
Sadly, the media and too many politicians still believe this false argument.
But a new nationwide poll just proved once and for all that they are dead wrong!
NPR and PBS recently conducted in-depth research about the attitude of Americans towards abortion, and the results are revealing.
Far from showing that a majority of Americans are pushing for increased abortion rights, the poll showed that 65% of Americans are staunchly pro-life.
According to the research, these Americans are “likely to vote for a candidate who believes abortion should be outlawed after the first three months of a pregnancy…or not permitted under any circumstance.”
And only 25% of the American population believes that “abortion should be available at any point during a pregnancy.”
One of the abortion movement’s favorite arguments centers around the continued “evolution” of society on this topic.
Pro-abortion activists repeatedly claim that, as more generations grow up in the shadow of Roe v. Wade, the American public will simply accept abortion as an “essential” service to women.
But the NPR/PBS poll discovered that, far from dying out with time, the pro-life movement continues to grow!
Nearly half of all Americans call themselves pro-life, according to the study, and three-quarters of the population support limiting abortion if at all possible.
The pollsters reported that “there’s a high level of dissatisfaction with abortion policy overall. Almost two-thirds of people said they were either somewhat or very dissatisfied [with America’s legislation regarding abortion].”
“What it speaks to is the fact that…people do see the issue as very complicated, very complex,” said Barbara Carvalho, who directed the survey. “The debate is about the extremes, and that’s not where the public is.”
“The public is very reactive to the arguments being put forth by the more committed advocates on both sides of the issue,” Carvalho added.
The survey also asked more nuanced questions, many of which support the fact that the pro-life movement is spreading quickly.
Approximately two-thirds of Americans believe that women should be required to meet with a health professional before seeking an abortion.
This would help women make well-informed decisions about their health and the health of their unborn children.
Additionally, at least a third of the poll’s respondents said they support “heartbeat laws,” which prohibits abortions after the detection of heart activity in the womb.
Again, this shatters the arguments of the liberal pro-abortion movement, which claims that “heartbeat laws” are unequivocally oppressive and unsupported across the United States.
The key takeaway from this NPR/PBS survey is that the American people are by and large more pro-life than the left wants us to think!
The Trump administration’s Supreme Court could even have a historic opportunity to overturn Roe v. Wade within the next few years.
“[The possibility of overturning Roe v. Wade] has often felt like an academic issue. It never felt like it could actually happen,” said David Pepper, a Democrat Party chair.
“With the current Supreme Court, that’s all changed.”
In the face of this truth, pro-abortion groups are now on the run!
Planned Parenthood and other abortion organizations are investing millions of dollars in election campaigns this year in hopes of electing officials who will further the pro-abortion agenda.
They’ll be campaigning across America, focusing on vulnerable populations and convincing them that they “need” abortion services.
Pro-life groups across the country hope to combat these efforts, “working closely with local allies on the most ambitious pro-life legislative agenda yet,” reported conservative activists.
November 2020 will be a battle ground indeed, and abortion may be the most hotly contested issue on the ballot.
Both sides will need to clarify their intentions about abortion laws and work hard to make legislation reflect what citizens actually want!
“This is not something that is purely a problem for Republicans,” said Liz Mair, a Republican strategist. “This can be very problematic for Democrats, too.”
Mair and others believe that pro-life and pro-abortion groups will clash in the coming election and the results could define policy for the next several years.
Please pray over this November’s election cycle. It’s more important than ever to elect pro-life leaders all around the country!
