This poll demonstrates how unpopular abortion is to Americans. Although Religion is blamed by abortionists as the reason, Religion could not have produced the widespread opposition to abortion as polls show about 16% of the population is non religious.
This poll found 75% of Americans want abortion to be confined to the first 3 months of pregnancy.
So why do we now read that in some Democratic states like New York allow abortion up until birth?
Elections have consequences. That’s what the people of New York are finding out this week. In an alarming move, the New York legislature, controlled by Democrats for the first time in years, made the decision to vote on a piece of radical abortion legislation that had previously been blocked by a Republican-controlled Senate.
In essence, the legislation would allow a woman to abort her child at any point during pregnancy, as long as a doctor determines that the death of the child is in the best interest of the “mother’s health,” which is a broad term that could mean her physical, emotional, psychological or financial health. Basically, this is abortion on demand at any point during pregnancy.
To celebrate this so-called progressive achievement, Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered the One World Trade Center’s 408-foot spire, the Kosciuszko Bridge and the Alfred E. Smith Building to be lit up in pink.
A Federal Bill sponsored by Democrats want to MANDATE abortion up until birth NATIONWIDE:

Their bill would eliminate almost all limits nationwide.
Congressional Democrats responded to a spate of state laws aimed at restricting abortion on Thursday by reintroducing the Women’s Health Protection Act.
The measure wouldn’t merely prohibit states such as Georgia and Alabama from banning abortion early in pregnancy if Roe v. Wade were overturned. It would also invalidate most state laws limiting late-term abortion, including Pennsylvania’s 24-week limit, under which notorious abortionist Kermit Gosnell was convicted in 2013 for killing 21 infants in utero (in addition to his conviction for murdering three infants with scissors after they had been born). Indeed, it would wipe almost all state limits on abortion, including mandatory waiting period and ultrasound requirements, off the books.
Essentially, congressional Democrats seek to take the standard for late-term abortion proposed earlier this year in Virginia — and shelved after the bill’s chief sponsor Kathy Tran acknowledged it would allow abortion through all nine months of pregnancy if a lone doctor asserted it was necessary for mental-health reasons — and impose it on every state that provides greater protection for unborn children late in pregnancy.
Just a note from the OP, I am NOT religious in any way, so my opposition to abortion is simply based on valuing the life of the not quite born yet.
“The abortion debate erupted anew this week after a video surfaced showing the Democratic sponsor of a Virginia abortion proposal acknowledging it could allow women to terminate a pregnancy up until the moment before birth, for reasons including mental health.
“First New York, and now a proposed Virginia bill that would legalize abortion up to the moment of birth,” tweeted Kentucky Republican Gov. Matt Bevin. “This is a sad commentary on the culture of death that continues to creep insidiously into the laws of our [country].”
Virginia Democratic Del. Kathy Tran is the sponsor of The Repeal Act, which seeks to repeal restrictions on third-trimester abortions. The bill — which was tabled in committee this week — has the support of top Democrats in the state, including Gov. Ralph Northam.
NEW YORK ‘CELEBRATES’ LEGALIZING ABORTION UNTIL BIRTH
The bill would remove a number of restrictions currently in place regarding late-term abortions, including doing away with the requirement that two other physicians certify a third-trimester abortion is necessary to prevent the woman’s death or impairment of her mental or physical health. The third trimester lasts until 40 weeks.
Todd Gilbert, the Republican House majority leader, questioned Tran about the bill during a hearing Monday. He asked Tran if a woman who has physical signs she is about to give birth could request an abortion if a physician said it could impair her “mental health.”
“Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth. She has physical signs that she is about to give birth. Would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so-certified — she’s dilating,” he asked.
“Mr. Chairman, that would be … a decision that the doctor, the physician and the woman would make at that point,” Tran replied.
“I understand that,” Gilbert replied. “I’m asking if your bill allows that.”
Tran replied: “My bill would allow that, yes.”
