CBS News poll finds most say Roe’s overturn has been bad for country

How do people feel about what’s happened in the year since the landmark abortion law Roe v. Wade was overturned

When Roe v. Wade was struck down a year ago, most Americans disapproved, and today, most feel that decision turned out to be a bad thing for the country generally, because they feel an increased threat to women’s health and rights. Half tell CBS News that abortion access in the U.S. has become more restricted over the past year than they expected.

Last spring, those who opposed overturning Roe felt doing so would be a danger to women and a threat to people’s rights, and many say some of their fears are now being realized.
