ASBURY PARK, New Jersey (LifeSiteNews) — A new poll found that a “significant majority” of Americans support state laws restricting abortion.

According to a Rasmussen Reports survey released May 17, which polled 1,000 likely voters on May 15-16, a sweeping 67% of respondents said they “believe abortion should not be legal past the first three months of pregnancy,” including 24% who think “all abortions should be illegal.”

In contrast, just 13% said they think “abortion should be legal at any time during a pregnancy before the moment of birth,” and another 13% said they would support legal abortion up to the sixth month of pregnancy.

The overwhelming support for at least some restrictions on abortion comes in spite of the fact that “[m]ore voters describe themselves as pro-choice than pro-life,” suggesting that even those who espouse pro-choice views do not necessarily support abortion “on demand” at any stage of pregnancy.

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has told Nancy Pelosi, a pro-abortion Democrat, not to present herself for Holy Communion. 

The archbishop is doing this to not only protect our Lord from sacrilege, but also to call Nancy Pelosi to repent from the grave sin of promoting abortion and from the sacrilegious communions that follow.

Archbishop Cordileone will now encounter sustained pressure to roll-back his decision, so we must stand with him today.

SIGN and SHARE this petition to stand with Archbishop Corileone as protects our Lord and Nancy Pelosi from further sacrilegious communions. 

The Eucharist is the literal body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ and no Catholic who has committed a mortal sin is to receive Holy Communion until confessing that sin in the Sacrament of Confession.

Nancy Pelosi's soul is in grave danger, not least because of sacrilegious communions as she continues a career-long crusade in support of killing unborn babies, and so the archbishop has done the most charitable thing possible in calling her to repentance and barring her from Holy Communion until she repents.

We must stand with this brave shepherd today, whom the people of San Francisco are lucky to call their archbishop.

SIGN the petition to support Archbishop Cordileone's brave defense of Our Lord in the Eucharist.

Pelosi said in March that that abortion “isn’t about what is your religious belief” and that “this really gets me burned up, in case you didn’t notice, because, again, I’m very Catholic – devout, practicing, all of that. They would like to throw me out, but I’m not going,” she joked, “because I don’t want to make their day."

What she doesn't understand is that her soul is at risk because of her support for spilling the innocent blood of unborn babies. 

In a letter last month to Pelosi, Archbishop Cordileone made clear that “should you [Pelosi] not [publicly] repudiate your advocacy for abortion ‘rights’ or else refrain from referring to your Catholic faith in public and receiving Holy Communion, I would have no choice but to make a declaration, in keeping with canon 915, that you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.” 

In announcing that the Speaker of the House is barred from Holy Communion, Cordileone made clear that he "will continue to offer up prayer and fasting for you [Pelosi].”

This is the heart of a true shepherd - Cordileone is a father willing to undergo all manner of insults and ridicule from the media and lukewarm Catholics in order to call one of his flock back to the fold.

SIGN the petition today to stand with Archbishop Cordileone as he faces into a storm of criticism.

Meanwhile, even though left-wing politicians like Democrat U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts have often touted polls that suggest that the majority of Americans support upholding Roe v. Wade — the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that established a federal “right to abortion” — surveys simultaneously indicate that Americans do not broadly believe that abortion should be legal in all circumstances and at all stages of development.

Earlier this month, another Rasmussen poll discovered that Americans who opposed overturning Roe v. Wade incorrectly believed that striking down the Court precedent would automatically outlaw all abortions, when in reality it would simply return power to allow or prohibit abortion back to state governments.

In addition, a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll found that although about two-thirds of respondents said they opposed the overturning of Roe v. Wade, roughly 70% of U.S. adults, including 52% of Democrats, favored at least some restrictions on abortion.

Moreover, an RNC poll found that a staggering 85% reject the abortion-on-demand policies imposed upon the nation by Roe v. Wade.

Americans’ growing support for abortion restrictions comes amid tense anticipation of the U.S. Supreme Court’s impending ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which concerns Mississippi’s ban on abortion after 15 weeks’ gestation.

The Court is expected to rule in favor of Mississippi by overturning Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992), after a draft majority opinion was leaked earlier this month.
