Abortion is not controversial in the United States
Abortion is not controversial in the United States - most Americans in most states believe abortion should be legal, even in Alabama, Florida, Texas and Wyoming. The problem is that five Catholic U.S. Supreme Court justices are part of a "conservative chokehold" that wants to force its religious views on the rest of us.
According to polling discussed in the Washington Post, there are only 7 states in which most residents believe abortion should be illegal: Arkansas, Idaho, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee and Utah (in Idaho, Mississippi and Tennessee, it is barely more than 50%). In Kentucky and South Carolina, it is 50/50.
