The good news for pro-life advocates is that the pendulum is actually swinging in their favor. The poll found that respondents were twice as likely to favor policies that err on the side of restriction and caution than they were to support, looser, more streamline abortion procedures.

"Pro-life," according to Marjorie Jones Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List, "has potential to be the kind of issue that speaks to working class Americans, to Hispanics, to Catholics, and to women."
