Most Americans believe abortion should be limited to the first three months of pregnancy, if at all, according to a Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll released Wednesday.

The poll comes as President Joe Biden weighs repealing the Hyde Amendment, which prevents the use of taxpayer dollars to fund non-governmental entities that perform or refer abortions.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki last week when asked how Biden plans to address the Hyde Amendment said: "I will just take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic and somebody who attends church regularly. He started his day attending church with his family this morning, but I don't have anything more for you on that."

The Marist poll also found:

  • 15 percent of Americans say they support keeping abortion available to women at any point during pregnancy
  • 20 percent of Democrats describe themselves as pro-life
  • Nearly six in ten Americans say they oppose using taxpayer money to underwrite abortion procedures
  • 31 percent of Democrats say they oppose federal funding of abortion
  • 77 percent of Americans are opposed to using U.S. aid money to fund abortions overseas
  • 55 percent of Democrats say they do not want the U.S. to fund abortion globally
  • 70 percent of Americans said they oppose abortions after an unborn child is diagnosed with Down syndrome.

Marist surveyed more than 1,000 adults in the U.S. in mid-January. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points.
