Poll shows majority of Americans favor abortion restrictions

WASHINGTON — The annual poll of Americans' views on abortion sponsored by the Knights of Columbus indicates that more than three-fourths continue to be in favor of "significant restrictions" on abortion access, even though a slim majority describe themselves as "pro-choice."

The poll, conducted by the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, surveyed 1,267 adults in December and another 1,350 adults earlier this month.

Seventy-six percent indicated support for "significant" limits, while 51 percent of respondents overall called themselves "pro-choice."
