Support for Proposition 1 Dropping

Proposition 1 - California

A recent Rasmussen poll shows that support for Prop. 1 – the state’s attempt to enshrine extreme abortion protections into the state constitution – is dropping. Results indicate that only fifty-nine (59%) of voters support Prop. 1, down from sixty-six percent (66%) only weeks ago.

The poll also shows that eighty-six percent (86%) of voters oppose late-term abortions, which will be allowed if Prop. 1 is successful. These findings come in tandem with a recent NBC affiliate KGET survey that found 72% of California viewers think Proposition 1 would go too far in expanding abortion.

“These poll numbers directly reflect our experience: the more Californians learn that Prop. 1 is extreme and legalizes late-term abortion, the more they oppose it. This is why we are part of a broad coalition of pro-life and pro-choice supporters who have all come together to defeat this measure,” said California Catholic Conference (CCC) Executive Director Kathleen Domingo.

Polling also shows that fifty-seven percent (57%) of women voters in California now call themselves pro-choice, down from sixty-five percent (65%) in August, while thirty-six (36%) of women now call themselves pro-life, up from twenty-seven (27%) in August.

The authors of Prop. 1 openly admitted in a KQED interview that viability language was left out of Proposition 1 "on purpose," opening the door for unregulated abortions at seven, eight, or even a full nine months of pregnancy for any reason and at taxpayer expense - including for residents of other states.

Prop. 1 would overrule state law and allow extreme late-term abortions up until the moment of birth – an argument that was not challenged by proponents in California’s official voting guide.
