Most voters — 57% — say they want strict limits on when abortion should be legal, and 24% stated that abortion should be illegal except in the cases of rape, incest, or the life of the mother is at stake.

Just 11.6% of Americans think that abortion should be legal up until birth, including partial-birth.

Those are some of the discoveries of a national poll on abortion conducted by A Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group.

In the poll, 19.7% of voters announced abortion should be illegal after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, and 30.8% of American voters think that abortion should be legal in the first and second trimesters.

The survey discovered that voters’ political affiliations matter regarding opinions on abortion. Independent voters think that abortion should be legal just in certain circumstances. Roughly one-third of these voters (33.8%) think that abortion should be legal in the first and second trimesters, and 11.5% believe abortion should be legal up until the moment of birth, including partial-birth.

Among Democrats, 35.9% think that abortion should be legal just in specific circumstances. Less than half of Democrat voters (45.3 %) think that abortion should be legal in the first and second trimesters, and 18.8% think abortion should be legal up until the moment of birth, including partial-birth.

“As these numbers show, American voters — including one-third of Democrats — have paid attention to the science of fetal development and support a variety of restrictions on abortion,” stressed Mark Meckler, President of A Convention of States Action. Results were from surveys conducted May 6-8 of more than 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.

Before Oklahoma’s governor signed a six-week abortion ban earlier this month, Dr. Iman Alsaden was often driving hundreds of miles a week, mostly from Kansas to Oklahoma, to see patients.

As the lead medical director for Planned Parenthood Great Plains, which operates two of the four abortion clinics in Oklahoma, Alsaden was treating upwards of 50 patients a day at her clinic in Oklahoma City.

Overnight, her clinic and others in Oklahoma had become critical access points for Texans seeking care. Months later, after Oklahoma’s new ban, Planned Parenthood Great Plains has stopped scheduling surgical and medical abortions in the state altogether. For Alsaden, it’s now the patients she’s no longer seeing that worry her the most.
