Contributing sentiments towards policy:

48% : The bill would codify the right to access abortion into federal law and guarantee the right of health care providers to perform abortion services.
39% : A key vote on the Women's Health Protection Act, a Democrat-led bill aimed at preserving access to abortion nationwide, failed in the Senate on Wednesday.
31% : Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted Democrats for forcing the vote, arguing that "it would attack Americans' conscience rights and religious freedoms.""It would overturn modest and overwhelmingly popular safeguards like waiting periods, informed consent laws and possibly even parental notification," McConnell said of Democrats' bill in remarks on the Senate floor on Monday.
25% : The Maine Republican said the bill "explicitly invalidates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in connection with abortion and supersedes other longstanding, bipartisan conscience laws."Asked at a news conference on Friday why he won't instead bring the Collins and Murkowski bill to the floor, which could receive bipartisan support, Schumer said, "We are not looking to compromise something as vital as this."
14% :Earlier this week, more than a dozen abortion rights groups wrote a letter strongly opposing Murkowski and Collins' bill, arguing it "would not protect the right to abortion if Roe v. Wade is overruled."
