How views of abortion have changed over time


Over the past 15 years, support for legal abortion, including on that question, has increased steadily. In 2006, about 39 percent of Americans said that a woman should be able to obtain a legal abortion for any reason. By 2018, that had increased by 10 percentage points, almost entirely because of increased support from Democrats. That year, there was a 35-point gap between the parties on the question.
