June 9 Web Event: Americans’ Knowledge and Attitudes About Abortion Access and the Pending Supreme Court Ruling

The Supreme Court is expected to issue a decision within weeks in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, a case that could overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established the constitutional right to abortion. Shortly after a draft of the Supreme Court decision was leaked, KFF fielded a new national survey to gauge the public’s views and knowledge about abortion, the Supreme Court case, and its potential political impact.

On June 9, KFF released findings from the national public opinion survey on abortion. The event highlighted key issues including awareness and attitudes of the impending Supreme Court opinion, its potential impact on abortion access, the importance of abortion policy to voting preferences in this year’s midterm elections, and knowledge of abortion and related health care.

The web event featured a presentation of the findings and an overview of the many issues at play. Audience Q&A with KFF polling and policy experts followed. Participants included:

  • Alina Salganicoff, Senior Vice President and Director of Women’s Health Policy
  • Ashley Kirzinger, Director of Survey Methodology and Associate Director for Public Opinion and Survey Research
  • Laurie Sobel, Associate Director of Women’s Health Policy
