Contributing sentiments towards policy:

48% : The measure establishes the legal right to abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy in all 50 states under federal law.
48% : "Just earlier this month she once again, as she has many times before, explicitly cited her Catholic faith while justifying abortion as a 'choice,' this time setting herself in direct opposition to Pope Francis.""Conversion is always better than exclusion, and before any such action can be taken it must be preceded by sincere and diligent efforts at dialogue and persuasion," Archbishop Cordileone wrote.
43% : Pelosi's position on abortion "has become only more extreme over the years, especially in the last few months," Archbishop Cordileone said.
43% : However, he said that while there is no question that "abortion is homicide," bishops must take a pastoral approach rather than wade into the political sphere.
42% : In September, Archbishop Cordileone asked Catholics in the archdiocese to pray for Pelosi on abortion.
36% : The bill was pushed forward over fears by abortion supporters the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade in its decision on a Mississippi ban on abortion after 15 weeks.
36% : However, Pope Francis also said he understood why the church takes a hard stance because accepting abortion "is a bit as if daily murder was accepted."
32% : He added that over the years he has heard from many Catholics "expressing distress over the scandal being caused by such Catholics in public life who promote such grievously evil practices as abortion."
31% :"This is why Pope Francis, as much as any pope in living memory, has repeatedly and vividly affirmed the church's clear and constant teaching that abortion is a grave moral evil," he said.
