Are Pro-Choicers Feeling Pangs Of Conscience?

WASHINGTON — A new Marist Poll released Tuesday finds that an overwhelming majority of Americans support implementing tougher restrictions for abortions, including more than six out of 10 pro-choice individuals who favor banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Commissioned by the Catholic fraternal organization Knights of Columbus, Marist conducted its annual phone survey gauging the public's attitudes toward abortion and legislation seeking to restrict access to abortion in the United States in November 2015.

Although the media likes to portray the narrative that America is about split in half on abortion when it comes to pro-life versus pro-choice, the survey, which interviewed nearly 1,700 respondents nationwide, with an error margin of +/- 2.4 percentage points, suggests that there is a broad consensus in America that supports tougher abortions laws.
