For nine years in a row a majority of Canadians favor some sort of restriction on abortion. A recent poll conducted by Environics found that:
56%, support legal protection at some stage before birth
30% support legal protection from conception on, after six months of pregnancy.
17% after three months of pregnancy
8% after six months of pregnancy.
Support for legal protection from conception on is much higher among women, 35%, than men at 25%.
68% of Canadians want privately funded
26% support tax-funding of all abortions down from 30% a year ago
18% or only tax-funded in cases of medical emergency "such as a threat to the mother's life or in cases of rape or incest.
Funding for medical procedures are a provincial responsibility. Our provincial governments need to defund this procedure that kills our most vulnerable precious unborn children. With governments right now scrambling to cut costs because of economic downturn, not only is it wrong to take our money to pay for something that according to this poll, a majority don't approve of but we also can't afford it.
