A poll released by Students for Life of America (SFLA) found most Millennials and Gen Z Americans (18-34-year-olds) do not appear to share the Biden administration’s radical abortion views.
The poll found 80 percent of these younger Americans believe they should have the right to vote on abortion-related policies in their state, an increase from the 66 percent who gave that response in 2021.
Once educated about when a human fetal heartbeat can be detected, 52 percent of those polled said they support a “heartbeat” abortion ban, with exceptions for rape, incest, or when the mother’s life is in danger, and 65 percent said doctors should be required to search for a heartbeat prior to performing an abortion.
Additionally, 67 percent said they oppose abortion for sex selection.
The poll also found 68 percent would be more likely to vote for a political candidate who supports requiring in-person medical care and testing before and after the use of drugs to induce an abortion.
SFLA President Kristan Hawkins noted results of the poll appear to conflict with many media portrayals of younger Americans largely in support of abortion rights
