Dobbs Anniversary Approaches; Social Conservatives United on Abortion
92% of social conservatives believe abortion should not be legal in most cases
In the only straw poll for and by social conservatives exclusively, of 13,928 social conservatives who have taken the poll to-date, 92% of them confirm that abortion should never be legal or should only be allowed up to 6 weeks, with 66% of that group making no exceptions or making an exception only for the life of the mother. Family Policy Alliance is releasing these preliminary results in celebration of the one-year anniversary of the overturn of Roe v. Wade in the Supreme Court’s June 24, 2022, decision Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
Craig DeRoche, President and CEO for Family Policy Alliance responded to these overwhelmingly pro-life early results:
“Since the high Court correctly overturned Roe v. Wade, the President, the abortion industry and the media have been spinning a narrative that abortion is a divisive issue, especially among party leaders.
“But our Social Conservative Straw Poll confirms that for social conservatives, abortion is a uniting issue. Either everyone matters or no one matters. Abortion is a a grave human rights violation against both mother and child. We will continue to compete with the abortion industry for every precious human life—and we will win.
“Social conservatives represent one of the nation’s largest voting blocks at 38%. Social conservatives are finding their voice, and speaking together with clarity — even as division and confusion creep into other political groups. That unified voice carries significant weight on election day, and we have proven that candidates who stand with conviction against abortion can carry the day in the voting booths.“Glenn Youngkin’s win in Virginia was just the beginning. We predict the 2024 election will be the ‘year of the social conservative’ as voters prioritize issues like abortion, parental rights, and protecting children from sexualization and transgender extremism.”
The Social Conservative Straw Poll will continue to run and gather results. Family Policy Alliance will release the final results on the question of abortion, as well as who social conservatives favor for President in 2024, this summer.
Social conservatives are still able to take the Social Conservative Straw Poll at Social Conservative Straw Poll.
