Recent poll shows strongest opposition to Roe v. Wade in years

.- Recent poll results indicate the strongest opposition to Roe v. Wade in years. According to the Harris Interactive Poll on abortion released March 3, 47 percent of U.S. adults do not support Roe v. Wade and 52 percent do.

This is a significant change from a 1998 poll, which showed that 41 percent opposed legalized abortion and 57 percent supported it.

However, a spokesperson for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops said she thinks the weakening support for Roe is even greater than the poll indicates.

The USCCB’s director of planning and information Cathy Cleaver Ruse, Esq., said the Harris survey question understated Roe v. Wade, describing it as “the U.S. Supreme Court decision making abortions up to three months of pregnancy legal.”

“Many Americans don’t understand that Roe v. Wade made abortion legal through all nine months of pregnancy,” said Ruse. “And most people think an unlimited right to abortion is wrong.”

The 2005 survey polled 1,012 U.S. adults, from Feb. 8 to 13.
