Most Americans who consider themselves "pro-choice" favor abortion restrictions

"[M]ore than 8 in 10 Americans (81 percent) ... and nearly two-thirds of pro-choice supporters (66 percent), would restrict abortion to — at most — the first three months of pregnancy.....Additionally, 77 percent of Americans, including 79 percent of women and 71 percent of “pro-choice” supporters, say that laws can protect both a mother and her unborn child."
