This groundbreaking poll, conducted on behalf of NLIRH and the Reproductive Health Technologies Project (RHTP), sheds new light on Latino/a attitudes by going beyond legality to gauge feelings related to judgment and support around abortion.
This new research confirms what NLIRH has known for a long time--there are widespread misconceptions when it comes to Latino/a attitudes toward abortion.
74% of Latino registered voters agree that a woman has a right to make her own personal, private decisions about abortion without politicians interfering.
73% of Latino registered voters agree that we should not judge someone who feels they are not ready to be a parent. 57% strongly agrees with this statement.
67% of Latino voters say they would give support to a close friend or family member who had an abortion. 43% say they would provide a lot of support. Only 23% says they would not feel comfortable offering support.
61% agree that the amount of money a woman has or does not have should not determine whether she could have an abortion when she needs one.
68% agree with the statement “even though church leaders take a position against abortion, when it comes to the law, I believe it should remain legal.”
