Contrary to conventional wisdom, Americans support bills that ban abortion after a heartbeat is detected, according to a new poll.
But it depends on how the question is phrased.
Pollster Scott Rasmussen surveyed 1,005 registered voters for the ScottRasmussen.com/HarrisX and split the samples in half to determine what Americans believe about the bills.
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed such a bill into law last week.
A full 56 percent of registered voters in the new survey backed such laws when they learned a fetal heartbeat can be detected as early as six weeks of pregnancy. The question read, “A fetal heartbeat can be detected as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. Do you favor or oppose a proposal that would make abortion illegal at any point after a fetal heartbeat has been detected?” Forty-four percent of registered voters were opposed.
But support fell when the “six weeks” language was excluded.
Less than half (45 percent) of registered voters supported fetal heartbeat abortion bans when the question read: “Do you favor or oppose a proposal that would make abortion illegal at any point after a fetal heartbeat has been detected?” Fifty-five percent of registered voters opposed the bills when that language was included.
The questions included a sample size of 516 voters and 490 voters, respectively.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
