The results of a CNN poll showed a majority of Americans want all or most abortions prohibited — a clear pro-life majority.
Some 62 percent want abortions illegal in all cases or legal only in certain instances while just 35% want abortions legal for any reason.
Breaking down the question further, CNN asked, “Do you think abortion should be legal in most circumstances or only a few circumstances?”
Here, 52 percent took a pro-life view saying abortion should be illegal in all (15%) or most circumstances (37%) while just 44 percent took a pro-abortion view saying abortions should be legal in all (35%) or most (9%) circumstances.
Interviews with 1,055 adult Americans were conducted by telephone by ORC International on August 22-23, 2012 for CNN. The margin of sampling error for results based on the total sample is plus or minus 3 percentage points. The sample also includes 924 interviews among registered voters (plus or minus 3 percentage points) and 719 interviews among likely voters (plus or minus 3.5 percentage points).
