No Democracy for Women

Nov 22, 2021

A recent poll, by the Washington Post and ABC News, found the majority of people in the U.S. support a woman’s right to choose whether or not to have an abortion.

Those calling themselves Democrats were in favor of keeping abortion legal by 82%; those calling themselves independent by 58%; those calling themselves Republicans by 42%.

The poll more or less showed that three quarters of adults in the U.S. favored keeping abortion legal. But one quarter may influence the Supreme Court toward either overturning Roe v. Wade or making it almost impossible for a poor woman to get an abortion.

While women with access to money may find abortion providers, poorer women won’t. It’s past time to keep this minority out of our bedrooms and away from our bodies.
