Roe v. Wade legalized abortion on demand… and Americans don’t support that

Numerous polls on the public’s opinion of Roe v. Wade — the decision which legalized abortion in the United States in 1973, overriding all state laws at the time — have been taken in recent weeks, with President Trump’s nomination of a new Supreme Court justice causing abortion supporters to fear that Roe may be overturned soon. These polls all seem to show that the public is heavily in favor of Roe and of legal abortion. But cheering from the pro-abortion camp aside, the truth is that when Americans are asked more in-depth questions about when abortion should be restricted, it is revealed that Americans do not actually support abortion on demand — even though groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL claim the opposite. This was noted by Michael J. New in a recent article at National Review, in which he pointed out that these Roe v. Wade polls are “misleading” for several reasons:

… [A] significant number of Americans are unfamiliar with the Roe v. Wade decision. A Pew Research Center poll taken in 2013 found that only 62 percent of respondents were aware that Roe v. Wade dealt with abortion…. Many wrongly think that overturning Roe v. Wade would result in national ban on abortion, instead a reversal of Roe would return the issue to the states.

Additionally, many polling questions… fail to inform respondents that Roe v. Wade effectively legalized abortion on demand for all nine months of pregnancy and makes it difficult to place limits on late-term abortions.
