.- CNN has published the results of a telephone-based poll regarding abortion, health care and health care reform conducted November 13-15. The results show promising pro-life trends and speak to the current debate in the Senate regarding abortion coverage in health care. The poll, which surveyed 1,014 Americans showed a majority (61%) do not favor federally funded abortions, and 51% believe that a woman having an abortion should pay for it herself, regardless of whether or not she has health insurance.

CNN polling director Keating Holland commented, "Roughly one in five Americans who oppose the House health care bill do so because it is not liberal enough." "The abortion issue may be one reason why. But for most Americans, potential restrictions on abortion may not be a deal-breaker," he added.

The poll also revealed the slowly growing pro-life trend in America reporting that the majority of Americans do not support unrestricted abortions. Only 26% of those polled said that abortion should be legal in all circumstances. Fifty percent said that abortion should be legal in certain circumstances, but not all and 23% said abortion should never be legal.
