...American attitudes regarding abortion; this from a periodical I recently read.
...on the May 11 Nightly News, NBC anchor Brian Williams claimed that-
"Most Americans believe a woman has a right to an abortion.
Most Republicans do not."
While it's true most Americans don't want abortion banned under all circumstances, the vast majority favor restrictions on abortion, and only 16%, according to a February '07 Washington Post poll, want abortion to be "legal in all cases."
Further, a May 4-6 poll CNN/Opinion Research found that 50% identified themselves as "pro-life" while a minority of 45% called themselves "pro-choice."
NBC's own April poll documented that Americans, 53% to 34%, agreed with the Supreme Court's decision to uphold a federal law banning partial-birth abortions.
For your information.
