Americans Broadly Support Roe V. Wade As States Move To Restrict Choice

Americans believe the Supreme Court should uphold its landmark abortion decision in Roe v. Wade, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.

This news comes as the court is anticipating Dec. 1 arguments over a Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks.

According to the poll, 75% of Americans believe abortion decisions should be left to the woman and her doctor. Only 20 percent believe such decisions should be regulated by the law.

Moreover, around two-thirds of Americans believe the Texas anti-abortion law should be rejected by the Supreme Court. Texas offered bounties to people who catch doctors and other people who help women get an abortion about six weeks of pregnancy. The Supreme Court allowed the law to go into effect last month.
