Contributing sentiments towards policy:

52% : According to Planned Parenthood, more than 100 measures protecting abortion rights are under consideration in various states, including California, Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland and New Jersey.
49% : In a 1992 ruling, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the court guaranteed a woman's right to an abortion until the fetus is viable outside the womb, which is typically around 22 to 24 weeks.
49% : Legislation restricting abortion in other states is moving more swiftly, with some taking a cue from the Texas law, which gives members of the public the ability to sue doctors who perform abortions -- or anyone who helps facilitate them -- once a heartbeat in the womb is detected.
47% : Alexis McGill Johnson, president of Planned Parenthood, which operates a number of abortion clinics across the country, said the signals from the court have given politicians "the green light to move forward with their own unconstitutional abortion bans, decimating access to abortion state by state, region by region."
43% : Measures restricting or protecting abortion are flooding state legislatures ahead of a ruling by the US Supreme Court that could upset the legal framework governing the practice for the past 50 years.
40% : Lawmakers in conservative Republican-led southern states have introduced bills tightening restrictions on abortion, while their counterparts in Democratic-ruled progressive states have submitted measures protecting a woman's right to choose.
39% : In September, the nation's highest court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority, declined to block a Texas law that bans abortion after six weeks, before most women even know they are pregnant.
36% : The legislative frenzy comes as the Supreme Court, dominated by conservatives following the nomination of three justices by former president Donald Trump, looks poised to possibly overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that held that access to abortion is a woman's constitutional right.
34% : In Missouri, a proposed bill would ban abortion in cases of ectopic pregnacy -- pregnancies outside the uterus, mostly in the fallopian tubes -- even though they are not viable and put the health of the mother in danger.
