A new poll from The Polling Company, Inc./WomanTrend commissioned by Students for Life of America (SFLA) found that only 7% of millenials agree with the Democratic Party platform that pledges to fight for abortion to be legal for any reason, paid for by taxpayers and unrestricted through the entire pregnancy.
The survey found that a whopping 70% of respondents favor some form of limits on abortions — with 28% wanting more restrictions than what we currently have in the US — such as banning late term abortion or requiring parental notification.

According to a report from LifeSiteNews, “the survey of Americans aged 18-34 found that while a majority rejected identifying with either party and they were evenly divided among ‘pro-life’ and ‘pro-choice’ labels at 39 percent each, they also consistently backed a rightward shift on abortion-related policy questions.”
“Fifty-six percent also opposed selling abortion pills online or administering them without a physical exam, and when informed that Federally Qualified Health Centers dramatically outnumber Planned Parenthood locations, 48 percent of millennials said they’d rather tax dollars go to the former (just 17 percent still preferred Planned Parenthood),” LSN reports.
Also worth noting: regarding Roe v. Wade, the survey found that 65% of respondents believe the public should have the right to vote on abortion laws — while 16% support courts limiting public votes and 19% were unsure.
Interestingly, when asked if they support Roe v. Wade, 40% of respondents initially said that they did — but “fifty-one percent became opposed after learning it effectively permits abortion through all nine months, and 54 percent after learning it protects the use of abortion as contraception or to eliminate children of a particular sex,” according to LSN.
