Jen Psaki pointed on Sunday to Fox News’ polling to dismiss concerns from Americans who are in favor of reversing Roe v. Wade and praised the two-thirds majority for uniting in favor of abortion rights. The outgoing press secretary for President Joe Biden has announced that the leaked draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade is not a partisan political matter because of the large majority backing of the 50-year-old court ruling.

So how can you say it’s not a partisan or political issue?” “Well, according to a Fox News poll, nearly two-thirds of the public does not want Roe v Wade to be overturned,” she fired back. The host pushed for the rest of the Americans who backed an overturn, questioning: “What about the others?” “Well, two-thirds of the public means that is the vast majority of the public who want a woman to be able to make choices with her doctor about her own health care,” Psaki answered, downplaying the perspective of an entire third of the population. [tweet_embed] May 11, 2022[/tweet_embed] “Two-thirds of the public doesn’t agree on a lot, but they agree that a woman’s rights should be protected,” she continued. “And I think that’s pretty significant.” Last Monday evening, a Politico report emerged with what seemed to be a photocopy of a draft opinion from Conservative Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito that revealed he and four other justices agreed to overturn Roe v. Wade. The draft opinion was written in February, yet an official ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is not expected until June. The Mississippi case that could lead to the overturn of federal protections for abortion was seeking to ban pregnancy termination at 15 weeks.

In the Fox poll taken April 28 through May 1, 63 percent of respondents announced they want to see the law stand while 27 percent want it overturned. This is very comparable to the same survey results taken in September 2021 and October 2020, which revealed 65 percent and 61 percent support for upkeeping the law, respectively.
