Pro-life but pro-Roe

A Gallup poll released last month found that 51 percent of Americans called themselves pro-life rather than pro-choice — the first time the poll has had a pro-life majority.

Of those surveyed in a new CBS News/New York Times poll, 62 percent thought that the Roe decision was a good thing and 64 percent didn't want it overturned.
