Poll Shows Californians Support Abortion Rights

The Orange County Register: Poll: Californians back abortion rights, by Dena Bunis:

Seven in 10 Californians  continue to support the right of women to get a legal abortion and endorse the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, which said women have a constitutional right to an abortion, according to a new Field Poll released Wednesday.

These findings cut across all population segments and political ideology and have remained constant for more than 20 years of Field’s polling on the issue.

Among Democrats, 80 percent favor either making no change to abortion rights in the state or making it easier for women to obtain a legal abortion. Support drops among Republican respondents but is still a majority at 54 percent. Seventy-five percent of those not affiliated with either party support such rights. . . .
