The poll gives respondents a choice between a ban on abortions after 20 weeks or a ban on abortions after 24 weeks – giving them a chance to indicate their support for or against late-term abortions.

Sixty-percent of women said that they preferred a ban on abortions before 20 weeks, while only 25 percent chose the 24 week ban.

Nine percent of the respondents volunteered a statement saying that abortion should never be legal. Only one percent of woment volunteered that abortion should always be legal.

Fifty-six percent of young people ages 18-35 indicated that they supported a 20-week ban on abortion.
