A majority support restrictions, but only 13% support overturning Roe.

That may be the lowest level of support for completely outlawing abortion since the ruling back in 1973.

Republicans don't care what People think....that's been evident for a long time. It's all about demonizing "the other". Period.

Since this "Roe v. Wade is in danger of being overturned" boogeyman has been advanced by the left during every Republican administration since 1973, please cite the upcoming action which the SC has agreed to hear.

This, I think, is one of the reasons why Republicans are losing many moderate voters. Most people who are not religious extremists think that women should have the right to choose in most cases and realize that sometimes there are very good reasons why a woman would choose to have an abortion. However, it seems to me that too many Republicans cater to the very small and extremist minority, just as many Democrat politicians do, also.

Also, btw, people know that some states have passed so-called heartbeat bills and fear that could become the law in many other states, too, even if Roe vs. Wade is not overturned.

"More than three-quarters of Americans say they believe Roe v. Wade should be upheld, but a strong majority say they would like to see restrictions added to the ruling too, according to a new poll."

SCOTUS rulings don't have restrictions....like that!

If you informed those Americans that there WERE vast numbers of restrictions on the ruling in the various states...and elsewhere (in law), then they would say "OK".....

this is sort of like the gun-control debate for me....

essentially, in my opinion, most people would prefer to NOT have an Abortion OR own a gun.
BUT....they want the option of "just in case". they want keep abortions AND the 2nd Amendment
active so the worst-case-scenario has some solutions available and not illegal.

SCOTUS should revisit and reverse The Slaughterhouse Cases; if that happened, we wouldn't need Griswold or Roe or PP v Casey or Lawrence v Texas or Obergefell v. Hodges . . . The penumbral rights theory is a clunky, less than optimal work-around for SCOTUS deactivating the 14th Amendment's "privileges or immunities" clause in Slaughterhouse.

The reason it’s in the spotlight is that multiple red states have passed restrictions that amount in some cases to a de facto ban on all abortions in an effort to take the issue to the federal courts.

It’s not “the left” that’s passed recent restrictions in Georgia, Alabama and Missouri. That’s what makes it a hot political issue, and probably not a very bright one to raise a year and a half before a Presidential election, at least not in states that will matter.
