Majority of Americans say abortion in second and third trimesters should be illegal, research finds

A recent poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds a majority (61%) of Americans support legal abortion in the first trimester, but majorities also say abortion should generally be illegal in the second trimester (65%) and third trimester (80%).

Pro-life advocates say the poll helps counter the idea that the Roe v. Wade decision establishing national abortion policy enjoys widespread public support.
