Poll: HuffPost/YouGov Confirm Anti-Abortion Trend

Below are the results of HuffPost’s recent poll on abortion and, if you zoom to question #5, the ban on abortions past 20 weeks gestation.  These numbers generally support the anti-abortion trend that has been detected by numerous polls.

These polls would be far more valuable–and likely reflect greater anti-abortion sentiments–if the questions differentiated between abortions procured in the context of a pregnancy that directly threatens the life of the mother and abortions procured under all other circumstances.  It is difficult to gleam from questions like this whether the general public supports or opposes the idea of limiting the right to an abortion in the context of emotional or familiar factors alone.
