Majority of women want 20 week restriction on abortion.

Quinnipiac Poll Asks
The U.S. Supreme Court has said abortion is legal without restriction in about the first 24 weeks of pregnancy. Some states have passed laws reducing this to 20 weeks. If it has to be one or the other, would you rather have abortions legal without restriction up to 20 weeks, or up to 24 weeks?
Americans say they back a 20-week limit by a 25-point margin, 55 percent  to 30 percent.
Women (60 percent) are 10 points more likely to back the 20-week limit than men (50 percent).
Hispanics back the 20-week limit by a 39-point margin, 59 percent to 20 percent.
Young people (18-29) back the 20-week limit by a 27-point margin, 55 percent to 28 percent.
Independents (59 percent) back the 20-week limit at nearly the same level as Republicans (62 percent).
Democrats narrowly choose the 20-week limit, 46 percent to 44 percent.
