Three-fourths back restricting abortion to first three months of pregnancy at most, poll finds

FOX News

Three-quarters of Americans -- including 60 percent of self-identified Democrats and 61 percent of those who identify as pro-choice -- support restricting legal abortion to the first three months of pregnancy at most, according to a new poll released Tuesday. The study also found that 59 percent of Americans supported a ban on abortions after 20 weeks except to save the mother's life. The phone survey of 1,066 adults was funded and sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and conducted by the Marist Poll. The two have teamed up every January since 2008 to gauge Americans' attitudes toward abortion. The poll found that 55 percent of Americans identify as pro-choice, up four percentage points from the previous year's survey.
