KELO Abortion Ban Survey Results
February 14, 2007, 9:24 PM
What do our viewers think about another abortion bill? We emailed four thousand of you to get your opinions on several questions concerning abortion.
We asked seven questions in our survey.
The first is whether those taking it voted last November. 93% of you say yes.
The second question we asked is if you voted against the abortion ban in November, would the addition of exceptions be enough to change your vote? Only 26% said yes, while 43% said no.
Then we asked which exceptions you would support. Rape, which must be reported according to bill 12-93. Incest, which must also be reported to police according to the new proposed ban. And health of the mother, which would require a second doctor's opinion.
A majority of you who responded overwhelmingly support all three.
We then asked if it's too early for the legislature to consider another ban like some lawmakers have claimed?
45% of you say yes, 55% say no, it's not too early.
And the final question is probably the most telling, are you in favor of another statewide abortion ban vote? 58% say yes, while 42% say no.
We should note that of the four thousand emails we sent out, only 208 people responded to the survey.
