Contributing sentiments towards policy:

62% : "They don't have the majority and haven't had the majority in a long time on this issue," Timmaraju said of anti-abortion lawmakers nationwide.
59% : Ballot measures in neighboring Nevada seeking to amend the state constitution must be approved by voters in two consecutive general elections.
55% : You have to ask the regulatory bodies to go in there and change the regulations to match what is now in the state constitution.
53% : "Anti-abortion activists have been working to thwart the initiatives, with some backing competing ballot measures -- a move that abortion-rights groups say is meant to deter and confuse voters.
50% : "Within weeks of the Supreme Court decision overturning federal abortion protections, the California Legislature was among the first in the nation to approve a statewide ballot measure to guarantee the "fundamental right to choose to have an abortion."
46% : The timing is no coincidence, said Mini Timmaraju, president and chief executive of Reproductive Freedom For All, formerly NARAL Pro-Choice America.
46% : "While organizers see newly proposed rules as strategic hurdles that make citizen led initiatives harder to succeed, Republicans who support them say that changing state constitutions is a serious matter that requires more safeguards.
40% : But unlike in liberal California, organizers in some of those states must navigate a patchwork of onerous bureaucratic hurdles and overcome hostile political opposition.
36% : Abortion is banned in Arizona after 15 weeks of pregnancy, and reproductive health advocates remain leery about future access after a state court recently attempted a near total ban.
