A new Marist poll released on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Roe v. Wade finds most Americans reject the 1973 ruling that created a right to abortion. According to the poll, which was sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, 62% of Americans say that if the Supreme Court revisits Roe v. Wade, it should rule to allow states to determine abortion restrictions (46%) or make abortion illegal (16%). This outcome includes 39 percent of those who identify as Democrat and 40 percent of those who consider themselves “pro-choice.” Only 33% of Americans say abortion should be legal at any time without restriction. The poll found 41% of those who identify as pro-choice are more likely to vote for candidates who support abortion restrictions, as are more than nine in ten, or 96 percent, of those who identify as pro-life. Additionally, 65% of Americans, and the same percentage of registered voters, say they “are more likely to vote for” candidates who would limit abortion to at most the first three months of pregnancy. This outcome includes 88% of Republicans, 62% percent of Independents, and 44% of Democrats. “What our polling makes clear is that millions of Americans describe themselves as ‘pro-choice’ because they believe in some choice, which would include life of the mother, rape, and incest as examples, but very few agree with abortion throughout pregnancy,” said Knights of Columbus CEO Carl Anderson in an interview with Breitbart News at the March for Life in Washington, DC.

Gov. Bill Lee proposed an "enhanced" heartbeat bill that aims to block women from getting an abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which usually occurs about six weeks into a pregnancy — before many women know they’re pregnant. Surrounded by dozens of mostly male GOP state lawmakers Thursday, Lee said the bill was "a monumental step forward in celebrating, cherishing and defending life." The bill, which is still being drafted, likely will not include exceptions for rape and incest and will require the mother to be shown an ultrasound of the fetus before they are able to receive an abortion.
So proud that @realDonaldTrump had the courage to speak at the March for Life rally. This should never be about what divides us but that we all cherish life. Historical that he is the first Potus to put politics aside and acknowledge that every life is a gift from God. https://t.co/LoZqjgChjD— Nikki Haley (@NikkiHaley) January 25, 2020
My @NewsBusters colleagues were crushing it on the Friday network evening newscasts. I'll be here tomorrow, but they had it locked down for this evening.
