Majority Supports Roe v. Wade Decision

63 percent don't want it overturned


Sixty-three percent of Americans would rather not see the US Supreme Court overturn its historic 1973 ruling on abortion, according to a Pew Research Center opinion poll released Wednesday.

Only 29 percent want to see the Roe versus Wade decision upended, according to the poll released six days before its the 40th anniversary, said Pew in a statement.

"These opinions are little changed from surveys conducted 10 and 20 years ago," the research institute said.
