POLL: MOST BRITS WANT NEW LIMITS ON ABORTIONS

"Powerful public support for an overhaul of the 40-year-old abortion laws has emerged from a Daily Telegraph survey of the nation's attitudes to the key ethical and moral issues of the day. Only 27 per cent of those questioned believed that the current 24-week legal limit for termination should be retained. Fifty eight per cent said abortions should not be carried out after the 20th week of pregnancy, with women more likely than men to favour tighter controls."
A 20 week limit would be in absolute accordance with ROE v. WADE - which held that states could only limit abortions which occur BFORE viability; 20 week old preemies routinely survive.
