Roe v. Wade, A Redux
Looks like support for the ruling isn’t as widespread as many may think.
For 33 years Harris Interactive has been measuring attitudes toward the landmark Supreme Court decision that made abortions legal during the first three months of pregnancy.
The latest telephone survey of 1,016 adults indicates Roe v. Wade is supported by a slim 49% to 47% plurality, compared with 52% who favored the decision in 2005 (see poll) and 57% in 1998.
Despite apparent waning support, a substantial majority (63%) of those polled don’t think it is likely that this Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade over the next few years.
Interesting. What do you think?
