MADISON, Wis. – While Republicans in Wisconsin and across the country continue to attack reproductive rights, it’s clear that the American people overwhelmingly oppose the GOP’s anti-choice agenda.
Poll after poll shows that the vast majority of Americans agree with Democrats and believe that people deserve to make their own medical decisions – not Republican politicians:
CBS News: “The American public is rendering its initial judgment on the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and most disapprove of the ruling, including two-thirds of women who disapprove. By more than a 20-point margin, Americans call it a step backward rather than forward for America.”
Wall Street Journal: “More than two-thirds of Americans want to uphold Roe v. Wade, and most favor women having access to legal abortion for any reason.”
Reuters: “More Americans prefer the Democratic Party’s approach to abortion policy than prefer the Republican approach, and two out of five Republicans do not favor their own party’s position on the issue, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found.”
NPR: “About two-thirds of Americans say they do not support overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal in the United States, according to the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll.”
Morning Consult: “Regardless of Roe, voters are more than twice as likely to say abortion should be legal nationally than that it should be illegal… Relatively few voters believe abortion should be illegal in all or most cases.”
