Poll Shows New Yorkers Oppose Abortion Expansion
A recent McLaughlin poll sponsored by the Chiroscuro Foundation reveals that most New York voters are opposed to the fundamental principles of Cuomo’s abortion expansion agenda. A vast majority of New Yorkers believe (78.8%), when they are informed of the number of abortions in New York, believe there is already sufficient access to abortion in New York State.
- 75% oppose changing the law so that someone other than a doctor can perform surgical abortions
- 89% oppose abortions for reducing twins or triplets to a single child
- 92% oppose late-term abortions for sex selection
The Reproductive Health Act bundled with a Woman’s Equality Act not only deregulates abortion but would make it immune to future regulation by making it a fundamental human right. Yet the poll revealed that New Yorkers overwhelming favor restrictions on abortion:
- 87% favor providing pregnant mothers information about options before they make a decision
- 78% approve of a 24 hour waiting period
- 76% approve parental notification when a minor seeks an abortion
- 68% approve of providing free medical care to mothers carrying their pregnancy to term
- 86% favor regulating abortion clinics as strictly as other medical facilities
