Pew Research Center has conducted many surveys about abortion over the years, providing a lens into Americans’ views on whether the procedure should be legal, among a host of other questions. In our most recent survey, 61% of U.S. adults say abortion should be legal all or most of the time, while 37% say it should be illegal all or most of the time.

With the U.S. Supreme Court set to rule this year on Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization – a Mississippi abortion case that is a challenge to Roe v Wade, the 1973 case that effectively legalized abortion nationwide – this post looks at the most recent available data about abortion from sources other than public opinion surveys.
