This poll shows that the majority of Americans from 2005 t0 2013 support Roe Vs. Wade.

Most Americans, however, do not know that Roe Vs. Wade legalized abortions throughout the third trimester of pregnancy. Go here for more info on late term abortions.

This second poll mischaracterizes the decision of Roe Vs. Wade. Roe v. Wade actually said that the state could not regulate abortion in the first two trimesters (so it legalized first and second trimester abortions, up to 24 weeks) but that the state COULD regulate it in the third trimester. Not that it HAD to, just that it could. That is why some states have laws against late term abortion. So this poll is misleading.

“The Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe versus Wade decision established a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion, at least in the first three months of pregnancy. Would you like to see the Supreme Court completely overturn its Roe versus Wade decision, or not?”
