CBS Poll Reveals Millenial Women Reject Abortion, Feminism, and the Media

LifeNews 20 August 2018
Family First Comment: “The poll, conducted by YouGov, looked at women from the ages of 18 to 35 and found that only 28% want abortion “legal in all cases.” Other results included: 34% want abortion “legal in most cases,” 25% want abortion “illegal in most cases,” and 13% want abortion “illegal in all cases.” In the end, that means 72% are likely in favor of some kind of abortion restriction.”
Whoops! 🙂

In anticipation of the upcoming midterm elections, CBS and Refinery29 teamed up for a poll concerning young American women’s voting trends and views on certain issues. They began publicizing it August 13. While some media reports of the findings focused more on the political aspects, such as the Trump Administration, the poll revealed much more. Namely, that many young women don’t fit the mold that the media and politicians often assume.

Abortion

The poll, conducted by YouGov, looked at women from the ages of 18 to 35 and found that only 28% want abortion “legal in all cases.” Other results included: 34% want abortion “legal in most cases,” 25% want abortion “illegal in most cases,” and 13% want abortion “illegal in all cases.”

In the end, that means 72% are likely in favor of some kind of abortion restriction.

Regarding Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that legalized abortion on a federal level in the U.S., 69% of young women said it should not be overturned and 31% said it should be.

But less than half (45%) worried that “access to abortion will become more restricted.” 26% worried that “access to abortion will be less restricted,” and 29% were “unconcerned.”

That contradicts the talking points of those like feminist icon Gloria Steinem, who says no abortion means “no democracy” for women, and former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards who insists that women “are not free” without abortion. That even opposes the narrative of the broadcast networks that regularly describe abortion as “women’s health care services.”

Young women beg to differ.
