1 in 5 Democrats Support Abortion up to Moment of Birth, Poll Shows

Almost one in five Democrats believe that abortions should be legal right up until the moment of birth, a new poll has revealed.

The Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group survey released this week found that most Americans believe abortion should only be legal under certain circumstances.

The results of the poll were released in the wake of a draft Supreme Court opinion overturning the Roe v. Wade abortion ruling.

Overall, the vast majority of Americans believe in strict rules on abortion with 57.6 percent saying abortion should be legal only in “specific circumstances.”

Of those, 24 percent said it should be illegal except in the instances of rape, incest, or preserving the life of the mother.

Another 19.7 percent said it should be illegal after a fetal heartbeat is detected.

And 13.9 percent believe it should be illegal “except in the case of the mother.”

Overall, 11.6 percent of Americans believe abortion should be legal up until the very moment of birth, and just short of one-third believe it should be legal in both the first and second trimester. 

A majority of both Republicans and independents, 81.5 percent and 54.6 percent, specifically, believe abortion should only be legal in specific circumstances.

Over one-third of Democrats, 35.9 percent, share that view as well.

However, 45.3 percent of Democrats believe abortion should be legal in both the first and second trimesters.

Shockingly, nearly 1 in 5 Democrats, 18.8 percent, believe abortion should be legal until the moment of birth “including partial-birth.”

The survey was taken May 6-8, 2022, among 1,000 likely 2022 voters and follows the leak of the draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.

If the ruling is overturned, it would kick the decisions on abortion back to the states.

Leftists have collectively melted down over the possible ruling, protesting in front of the homes of the justices as well as the Supreme Court.

During the protests, some have shouted, “Hail f**king Satan” as an apparent attempt to “own” pro-life Christians.
