Contributing sentiments towards policy:

55% : That's why the states are the best place for the country to grapple with abortion.
50% : Progressives push to cancel conservative: Here's how the right is fighting back"As the country approaches what could be a watershed moment in the history of abortion laws and policies, relatively few Americans on either side of the debate take an absolutist view on the legality of abortion - either supporting or opposing it at all times, regardless of circumstances," Pew states.
49% : Allowing abortion to be decided at the state level also helps put this country more in line with international abortion law and policy, Hawley argued.
47% : Sending abortion back to the states certainly makes for more closely watched legislative and gubernatorial elections, as voters will have a much bigger voice in what each state's abortion framework looks like.
46% : "There is no evidence that abortion is a right deeply rooted in our nation's history, which is what is required," she said.
40% : Case in point: the volatile outbursts and protests - even in front of conservative justices' homes - that took place even before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that created a federal right to abortion.
39% : The United States has been one of just a handful of countries - others include China and North Korea - without gestational limits on abortion.
37% : And the same goes for those who say they oppose abortion.
35% : As is the case with most cultural flash points these days, there doesn't seem to be any room for rational debate or compromise on abortion.
35% :Supreme Court drafts do not leak: Abortion may be at risk but so is court's sanctity
34% : Pew found most Democrats believe abortion should be illegal in some instances, such as factoring how far along a woman is in her pregnancy.
32% : Keep in mind now that the court has used the Mississippi case (Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization) to overturn Roe, that the decision won't make abortion illegal nationwide.
29% : A majority of adults - 71% - say abortion should either be mostly legal or mostly illegal or say they would support exceptions to their full support or opposition to abortion.
25% : That might sound significant, but many of those states already have some of the strictest restrictions on abortion, and they also tend to have more conservative populations less open to abortion.
