Contributing sentiments towards policy:

46% : "In light of the leaked Supreme Court decision draft overturning Roe v. Wade, and subsequent reports that Republicans in the U.S. House and Senate will introduce legislation to enact a nationwide six-week ban, the real question of the moment is: do you support a categorical ban on abortion?
42% : In a statement released after the vote, Toomey called the bill, sponsored by U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn) "extreme.""The vast majority of Americans support restrictions on abortion, yet the bill the Senate is considering today would allow an individual to obtain an abortion, as a practical matter, at any time for any reason up until the moment of birth," Toomey said.
32% : "In the nearly three months since the Senate last voted on the Women's Health Protection Act, the circumstances around the entire debate on abortion have changed," Casey said.
30% : Baldwin plans to do the same, noting Republicans' position on abortion, including that women who are survivors of rape or incest be required to carry a pregnacy to term, are "radical and extreme."
27% : In a statement released ahead of the vote, Casey, who opposes abortion, but has supported family planning and satellite issues, said he would vote to advance the bill, and planned to vote in favor of it, if it ever reached that point.
