Only 34% of Northern Irish citizens support abortion for any reason

A 2016 survey in Northern Ireland Life and Times found:

“Some 81 percent supported abortion in the event of a foetal abnormality, 73 percent in cases of a possible foetal abnormality and 78 percent in cases of rape or incest…

However, when voters were asked whether they supported abortion simply because a woman did not want the child only 34 percent said “yes”, and 60 percent said “no”.”
