The issue of abortion-Most US Residents support abortion rights with some restrictions

6 August 2005 at 2:05:40 PM

The issue of abortion rights needs to come up a notch to a privacy argument. Whether or not one agrees with or finds morally reprehensible, the idea of abortion, the higher point is whether the government ought to be intruding into decisions of private citizens making choices for their own lives and families;ie, it is a privacy issue that asks Bush and the Republican meddlers to mind their own business.

About 65% of US residents support the Supreme Court's decision in... Roe v. Wade -- the 1973 decision in which the court struck down state bans on abortion -- but 73% support some restrictions on abortion rights, according to the results of a study released on Wednesday by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, the Long Island Newsday reports (Eisenberg, Long Island Newsday, 8/4). According to the study, which was based on the responses to a July 13-17 survey of 1,502 U.S. adults and a July 7-17 survey of 2,000 adults, 35% of respondents believe abortion should be "generally available"; 23% support stricter limits on the procedure; 31% say it should be illegal except in cases of rape, incest or to protect the life of the pregnant woman; and 9% think it should be illegal in all circumstances, according to Pew release (Pew release, 8/3). The polls, which were conducted before President Bush nominated Judge John Roberts for a seat on the Supreme Court, also found that 63% of respondents believe Supreme Court decisions on abortion-related cases are very important (Lane, Washington Post, 8/4). Among self-described liberal Democrats, the issue of abortion rights is the most important issue facing the Supreme Court, according to the study.
