An additional 12% stated abortion should be legal up to the first six months of pregnancy, whereas 15% believe abortion should be legal at any time during a pregnancy prior to the moment of birth

In 2022, the Supreme Court overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which allowed each state to have the power to craft its own laws concerning abortion. 48% of voters approve of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, which includes 32% who strongly approve. 45% of voters disapprove of the Supreme Court’s decision in the case, which includes 35% who strongly disapprove of the court overturning Roe v. Wade.

70% of Republican voters, 45% of Democrat voters, and 53% of independent voters believe abortion should not be legal beyond the initial  three months of pregnancy.

76% of Democrat voters, 33% of Republican voters, and 48% of independent voters view themselves as generally pro-choice on the abortion question, whereas 59% of Republican voters, 19% of Democrat voters, and 33% of independent voters are pro-life.

53% of white voters, 58% of black voters, 50% of Hispanic voters, and 54% of other non-white minorities view themselves as pro-choice.

As far as income earners are concerned, voters making over $200,000 annually are most likely to oppose the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. 

Overall, Americans have centrist views on abortion. In light of this, pro-life activists should focus on turning red states into pro-life bastions as they work to change the broader culture and move it in a pro-life direction.
