Two-thirds of American voters side with the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, according to a new survey.

Select results in the Quinnipiac University National Poll:

  • 28% of U.S. voters said abortion should be legal in all cases.
  • 32% said abortion should be legal in most cases.
  • 65% agree with Roe v. Wade, the decision that made abortion legal across the country.
  • 82% are in favor of legal abortion in the case of rape or incest.
  • 48% are opposed to laws that outlaw abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, while 41% support them.

Anti-abortion laws have recently passed in Alabama and Georgia, while several other Republican-controlled states are looking at similar pieces of legislation.

"There is little ambivalence as recent legislation in Alabama, Missouri and other states renews an emotional national debate over abortion," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"Americans are in agreement on upholding one of the country's most contentious rulings. And in the nightmarish scenario of rape or incest, party lines fall away in support of allowing abortions."
