The leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion that would overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision has voters divided almost evenly over the landmark abortion ruling.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters would approve of a Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, including 32% who would Strongly Approve. Forty-five percent (45%) would disapprove of overturning Roe v. Wade, including 35% who would Strongly Disapprove.

The draft of Justice Samuel Alito’s majority opinion was leaked to Politico this week, touching off a firestorm of controversy. In an official statement, President Joe Biden declared that “a woman’s right to choose is fundamental, Roe has been the law of the land for almost fifty years, and basic fairness and the stability of our law demand that it not be overturned.” Sixty percent (60%) of voters agree with Biden’s statement, including 45% who Strongly Agree. Thirty-five percent (35%) disagree, including 22% who Strongly Disagree with Biden’s “demand” that Roe v. Wade not be overturned.

In his draft opinion, Justice Alito declared that the Roe v. Wade decision “was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences.” Forty-seven percent (47%) of voters agree with Justice Alito’s statement, including 31% who Strongly Agree. Forty-six percent (46%) disagree with Alito, including 33% who Strongly Disagree that Roe “was egregiously wrong.”

What’s really disturbing are the real reasons behind why they are doing this, who is funding these unconstitutional rallies, and the fact many are retired and elderly!! You know, those females that are not physically young anymore, and not child bearing people. This is all pre-planned, just like with the sick LGBTQ+ agenda. All these deranged and naive people understand is attack and divide!!!

Well, early on it might pass as a ‘clump of cells,’ however most abortive ‘not-wanna-be’ mothers would be astonished to experience how quickly that ‘clump’ grows to resemble a human being with movements, reflexes and facial expressions.
