Another new national poll has confirmed that Americans want all or most aboritons banned so unborn children can be legally protected.

A new Trafalgar Group poll shows 57.6% of Americans believe all abortions should be banned or banned when an unborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected.

According to the survey (download the PDF here), 13.9% of those polled say abortions should be illegal except in very rare cases to save the mother’s life, another 24% of Americas think 99% of abortions should be illegal except in cases of rape, incest or to save the mother’s life, and 19.7 percent of abortions support banning abortions when an unborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected at approximately 6 weeks.

With the majority of Americans taking a pro-life position to support banning abortions (which requires Roe v. Wade to be overturned) that leaves a minority of Americans supporting abortion. Just 42.4% of Americans support legalized abortion with 30.8 percent saying they only want abortion legal in the first and second trimester and only 11.6% of Americans saying they support abortions up to birth — the position of Joe Biden and the Democrat Party.

Breaking the results down by party, Trafalgar found 35.9% of Democrats took one of the three pro-life positions, 81.5% of Republicans take a pro-life position and 54.6% of independents have one of the three pro-life positions.
