COLUMBUS, Ohio- According to the recent NBC and Washington Post polls, the majority of Americans support a ban on late-term abortion. The NBC poll spotlights a 44-37 percent margin while the Washington Post demonstrates a majority support with a 56-27 percent margin.
“Both national polls clearly demonstrate that only a small minority of Americans support horrific late-term abortions,” said Director of Communications of Ohio Right to Life, Emmalee Kalmbach. “In light of our recent life-saving state budget amendments as well as Texas’ pro-life achievements, these polls are confirmation that Ohioans as well as Americans support and believe in our life-saving initiatives.”
The Washington Post goes on to state that another 10 percent surveyed in the poll volunteered that they would prefer to outlaw abortion in the United States altogether or limit it earlier than 20 weeks after fertilization.
“These results are part of a series of polls that have come out since January proving over and over again that our country remains pro-life. It’s clear that the lies and deceptive messages from Planned Parenthood and their allies are simply not gaining ground,” continues Kalmbach. “This is an exciting time in the pro-life movement. We have a front row and historic seat to watch our country become more and more pro-life.”

Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement in Ohio, ORTL works through legislation and education to promote and defend innocent human life from conception to natural death.
