A Harvard/Harris poll found that just 6 percent of Americans believe abortion should be allowed up until the birth of the baby. Life News reported on a Marist study holding that merely 13 percent of people support abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. A Morning Consult research study revealed most Americans think abortion should be made illegal. The 2021 annual Gallup poll shows that only 32 percent of respondents think abortion ought to remain legal through birth. This is why for the last 40 years, federal legislators pass spending bills with the Hyde amendment, ensuring tax dollars do not pay for abortion.
Given that most Americans oppose abortion, why are federal government representatives, for the first time since 1976, considering a spending bill that would fund abortion?
