The company Datafolha, hired by Rede Globo, polled 7,000 Brazilians on a variety of issues.
According to the results, 63% of those polled believe the country’s laws on abortion should remain untouched, that is, that abortion be permitted in cases of rape or life of the mother. Only 41% of those surveyed two years ago, in an official poll by the Ministry of Health, answered similarly.
Only 11% of those responding to the Datafolha poll said they supported unrestricted abortion. 17% said they supported more liberal abortion laws.
.- A recent poll has revealed that support for abortion in Brazil is waning and that Brazilians do not support efforts to widen its legal scope.
