AP Poll: Abortion Access 'for Any Reason' Gaining Support

By    |   Tuesday, 09 July 2024 02:15 PM EDT

A growing number of Americans support access to abortion "for any reason," according to a new poll from The Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research released on Tuesday.

The survey, which was conducted in June, found that most Americans, 61%, support their state allowing legal access to abortion if "the person does not want to be pregnant for any reason." In total, 70% said abortion should be legal in most or all cases, while 29% said abortion should be illegal in all or most cases:

  • 61% said abortion should be allowed "if the person does not want to be pregnant for any reason."
  • 36% said abortion should not be allowed "if the person does not want to be pregnant for any reason."
  • 2% refused to answer.

A previous poll from the same month in 2021 found that just under half, 49%, supported access to abortion "for any reason." In June 2023, about one year after the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark decision that ended the protections provided by Roe v. Wade, 54% supported access to abortion "for any reason," according to a survey conducted by AP-NORC at the time:

  • 49% supported access to abortion "for any reason" in 2021.
  • 54% supported access to abortion "for any reason" in 2022.
  • 54% supported access to abortion "for any reason" in 2023.

Support for abortion has increased among Republicans by 11%, Democrats by 14%, and independents by 11% since 2021, according to these surveys. 

The AP-NORC Center Poll surveyed 1,088 adults across the country from June 20-24 with a margin of error of +/- 4.0 percentage points.
