Lifesitenews.com- "The new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released today shows 61 percent oppose taxpayer funding of abortions while just 37 percent are supportive.
The CNN poll goes further and finds that a majority of Americans, by a 51 to 45 percent margin, believe women should be required to use their own money to pay for abortions even if they have private health insurance and no government money is involved. They did not think health insurance should pay for abortions...
In the new CNN survey, 26 percent said abortions should be legal under any circumstances, 23 percent said abortions should be illegal under any circumstances and 50 percent said they should only be legal under certain circumstances.
If those certain circumstances are defined as the very rare cases of rape or incest or when the life of the mother is threatened by the pregnancy, then 73 percent of Americans oppose 98 percent of the 1.2 million abortions that take place every year in the United States.
A second CNN question validates that contention.
It found 63 percent of Americans say abortion should be illegal in all cases or only in a few cases while just 36 percent say abortion should be legal in most cases or in all cases.
