New poll says large majority of Americans want limits on abortion, support pregnancy help

The latest new Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll conducted in early January found that Americans strongly support abortion restrictions. The poll found that nearly seven in 10 Americans think there should be significant limits on abortion.

The survey, sponsored by the Knight of Columbus, studied over 1,000 American adults, and the results are worth noting.

The significant findings:

  • 69 percent of Americans support limiting abortion
  • 91 percent of Americans support pregnancy help organizations
  • 60 percent of Americans oppose using tax dollars for abortion services
  • 78 percent of Americans oppose aiding abortion in other countries
  • 60 percent of Americans are opposed to abortion if the child will be born with Down syndrome

What do the findings mean?

“It means life is winning in America,” said Heartbeat International Vice President of Ministry Services Tracie Shellhouse. Heartbeat is the largest network of pregnancy help in the U.S. and internationally. 

The January 2023 Marist Poll also points to a large majority of Americans - a whopping 91 percent - seeing pregnancy help as a far better alternative for women and families than abortion. 

“There is a clear consensus that women facing unexpected pregnancies deserve respect and support, both of which can be found at a pregnancy help organization,” Shellhouse said.

Furthermore, at the same time that huge majority supports and sees the need and value of pregnancy help organizations, the results also confirm that most Americans oppose having their tax dollars go to funding abortions. 

The poll proves Americans are rejecting the fictitious promises abortion has to offer. Promises of safety, empowerment, and peace. 

“Looking at the science, available resources and tangible support, it has become clear that women do not ‘need’ abortion,” said Shellhouse, “making its practice clearly inhumane and overall undesirable.”

It is encouraging to see such a high percentage of people supporting limitations on abortions. 

Even small steps can have tremendous impacts and seemingly minimal regulations can save lives. 

For decades, pro-abortionists have peddled the false narrative that one must be pro-abortion to be pro-women. 

Still, “an overwhelming majority of people - 90 percent this year - believe that our laws can protect both the mother and her unborn child,” said Patrick Kelly, Supreme Knight for the Knights of Columbus. 

“The abortion debate is framed in the context of supporting either one or the other," Kelly said. “The reality is we can - and must - craft laws that protect both mothers and their children.” 

The reality is also that pregnancy help is the ultimate pro-life, pro-woman, and pro-family option, and Americans see that.
