ok, a bit of an assumption but you have expressed

yourself freely enough in the past regarding this topic.
Or am I mistaken about past opposition to abortion?
Now someone can be against abortion without being religious, I'll grant that.
How often though here have you bought religion into a discussion? don't you based many or your replies on scripture? I don't see that I really bashed your religion either.
And the discussion about abortion have more people invoking religion than any other I know. I'm not sure you can separate religious belief from the people's position on whether or not a fertilized egg is a human or not.
Most vocal arguments you hear, read, etc against abortion are by people that freely involve their religious belief in the argument.
So I made an assumption that is only 95% or so true.
I know polls aren't facts, and people generally only believe the poll when they agree with the results, but the public opinion about pro-life vs pro-choice seems to wander around 50% for over a decade.
Given that, I'm not inclined to want law to dictate the choice. Should there be restrictions? on that question I'm sure you can get over 50% support. Then you get into the argument about when is an embyro human? then you normally get religious arguments on the pro-life side. Would you deny that?
