According to a Post-ABC poll, Americans generally support Rowe versus Wade and oppose restrictions on abortion in Texas.

WASHINGTON – Americans roughly 2 to 1 say the Supreme Court should uphold its landmark Roe v. Wade abortion ruling, and by the same margin, the public opposes a Texas law banning most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, according to a Washington poll. Post-ABC News.

Unilateral support for the protection of abortion rights arises when the court hears cases challenging its longstanding precedents, including the December 1 argument under Mississippi’s law prohibiting abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

A Post-ABC poll shows that 27% of Americans say the trial should overturn Roe, while 60% say it should be upheld, a view consistent with polls in 2005. More broadly, three-quarters of Americans believe that access to abortion should be kept. women and their doctors, and 20% say they should be regulated by law.

While Americans have long supported restricting access to abortion after the first trimester of pregnancy, the survey shows that Americans are widely opposed to recent efforts in conservative states to enforce stricter restrictions.

When asked about Texas law that allows individuals anywhere in the country to sue anyone who performs or helps someone get an abortion in Texas after about six weeks of pregnancy, a Post-ABC poll found that 65% say that the court must reject the law. while 29% believe it should be supported. The Supreme Court is considering the role that federal courts can play in assessing a Texas law that was intended to avoid federal court review. A separate issue: 36% support state laws that make it difficult for abortion clinics, while 58% oppose such restrictions, including 45% who oppose them “strongly”.

The Supreme Court established the constitutional right to abortion in the 1973 Roe judgment and upheld it in 1992 in Planned Parenthood v. Casey. The decision recognizes that states have a vested interest in protecting the unborn life, but may not enact laws that place an undue burden on abortion before the fetus can survive outside the womb, typically between 22 and 24 weeks.

But the court now has a 6-to-3 conservative majority and has expressed a willingness to rethink its precedents by revising the Mississippi 15-week ban, which lower courts overturned for contradicting the Rowe and Casey rulings. Three of the conservative judges – Neil M. Gorsuch, Brett M. Cavanaugh, and Amy Connie Barrett – were appointed by President Donald Trump, who said he would select the candidates to topple Roe. All stated at the affirmation hearing that they did not anticipate the issue.

When the Mississippi case was heard by the court, he said he would answer one question: are all bans on elective abortion unconstitutional to the point of viability. But since then, the state has asked the court to use the case to overturn the Rowe and Casey case and return the abortion decisions to the states.

The survey results show why some on the court may resist such a bold move. Rowe has become synonymous with a woman’s right to choose an abortion, even though some of the restrictions on the process may be politically popular.

Americans’ views on abortion differ sharply along party lines, although Democrats and Republicans are not mirror opposites. 82% of majority Democrats and 58% of independents believe the court should support Rowe, while Republicans are divided: 42% say the decision should be upheld and 45% say it should be overturned. And while a 55% majority of Republicans say the court should uphold the Texas abortion law, an even larger majority of Independents (68%) and Democrats (89%) believe it should be overturned.

Women are more likely to say the court should support Rowe than men, from 64% to 56%, although bias outweighs gender, as Democratic and Democratic men hold similar views on the issue, and vice versa for Republicans.

Support for the overthrow of Rowepeaks among white Protestant evangelicals, 58% of whom believe the court should overturn the precedent. Among Evangelical Protestants, regardless of race, 43% believe Rowe should be supported, and 45% believe that she should be abolished. 62% of Catholics say the court should uphold Rowe, as do 73% of those who do not identify with any religious group.

A Post-ABC poll found broader agreement that women and their doctors should make abortion decisions, not be regulated by law. Overall, 75% say such decisions should be left to the woman and her doctor, including 95% Democrats, 81% Independents, and 53% Republicans.

About 8 in 10 women and 7 in 10 men prefer women and doctors to make abortion decisions rather than be regulated by law. White evangelical Protestants are roughly evenly divided.

The Post-ABC poll was conducted from November 7 to 10 among a random sample of 1,001 adults nationwide on mobile and landlines. The sample margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 points for overall results and more for subgroups.
