Americans *hate* the Texas abortion law

Texas Republicansdecision to pass the nation’s most restrictive abortion law earlier this month has landed like a lead balloon with voters nationally.

At the core of the law is the empowerment of private citizens to bring lawsuits against people who assist someone in getting an abortion after the state’s six-week window. It also provides monetary rewards of up to $ 10,000 for those who bring the suits.
People really don’t like either of those provisions, secondo new national polling from Monmouth University.
    Fully 70% of Americans disagree with the idea of allowing private citizens to bring lawsuits against abortion providers. That numbers includes 9 nel 10 Democratici, sì, but also more than 4 nel 10 Repubblicani.
      Opposition to paying off these complainants is even higher in the poll, con 81% disapproving of the idea — Compreso 2 nel 3 (67%) of self-identified Republicans.

        Those sorts of overwhelming majoritiesparticularly on an issue as divisive as abortion rightsare essentially unheard of, but speak to a bipartisan sense in the public that Texas Republicans went too far.
        Remarkably, in spite of those numbers, almeno seven other Republican-controlled states have expressed interest in following Texaslead on its abortion law.
            And in Missouri, a federal judge is expected to rule on Tuesday as to whether a 2019 law that effectively bans abortion after eight weeks can begin to be implemented.
            Il punto: At minimum, the Texas law will serve as a base-motivating tool for Democrats who are in search of energy in advance of the critical 2022 midterms. Al massimo, the lawand other potential copycats around the countrycould jeopardize the GOP’s ability to win over swing voters.
