National Right To Life's Pro-Life Polling Edge

Susan B. Anthony List Polling Data

 

Zogby Poll April 2004 -56 Percent Hold A Pro-Life View.

Just as abortion advocates were holding their first demonstration in years, a new Zogby Poll shows that America is firmly pro-life.  Zogby’s poll conducted between April 15-17, 2004 found the following results:

  • 56 percent believe abortion should never be legal, be legal when the life of the mother is in danger or be legal in cases of rape or incest.  This means that 56 percent of Americans believe that over 95 percent of all abortions should be illegal.  Only 13 percent believe support abortion rights advocates’ position that abortion should be legal throughout pregnancy.
  • 60 percent of America’s 18-29 year olds believe that abortion should never be legal or only be legal when the life of the mother is in danger or in cases of rape or incest.

Continued:

  • 78 percent of Hispanics believe abortion should never be legal or only be legal when the life of the mother is in danger or in cases of rape or incest. 
  • 62 percent of African Americans believe abortion should never be legal or only be legal when the life of the mother is in danger or in cases of rape or incest.
  • 61 percent agree that abortion should not be permitted after the fetal heartbeat has begun. 
  • 65 percent agree that abortion should not be permitted after fetal brainwaves are detected.
  • 74 percent say that tax dollars should not be used to pay for abortion.
  • 77 percent favor laws “requiring that women who are 20 weeks or more along in their pregnancy be given information about fetal pain before having an abortion.”
  • 49 percent call themselves pro-life.  45 percent call themselves pro-choice. 
These numbers are reflective of a series of polls describing America as a pro-life nation.  That 56 percent take a pro-life position and 49 percent describe themselves as pro-life is due to the fact that many think that if they support abortion in extreme cases they are not pro-life, when in fact they are.  Only 13 percent support the extreme abortion on demand throughout pregnancy position of NARAL, Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups.  These groups are well aware of these numbers and how they have lost the younger generation.  These numbers necessitated their Sunday march and their inflated numbers.  Other poll numbers are found at the Nevada LIFE website, www.nevadalife.org.  Go to the National Right To Life Website, www.nrlc.org for a fuller account of this poll and other polls.  See also the Susan B. Anthony List, www.sba-list.org for other polls with excellent graphics.
