20. Do what you want.

However, this had nothing to do with " religion". This is the view of a few, mostly white, people in a very powerful cult disguised as a religion. Most evangelicals do not believe in repealing Roe. (Among Christians, white evangelical Protestants remain the substantial outliers with 30% saying abortion should be legal in most or all cases, compared to 73% among Black Protestants, 70% among white mainline (non-evangelical) Protestants, 59% among white Catholics, 57% among Hispanic Catholics, and even 52% among Hispanic Protestants.) There are countless polls proving that fact. Most Christians subscribe to the view illustrated in 1 Corinthians 11:28-29, "but let a man examine himself". Most have a live and let live attitude because they realize that each walk is different.
But, I believe in free speech. Whether I agree with the sentiments or not, I support your right to say whatever is on your heart.

A few articles with statistics on the matter.

( From the article: 3 of 4 people believe this decision should be between a woman and her doctor.)

From the article: Gallup polls show Americans’ support for abortion in all or most cases at 80% in May 2021, only sightly higher than in 1975 (76%), and the Pew Research Center finds 59% of adults believe abortion should be legal, compared to 60% in 1995—though there has been fluctuation, with support dropping to a low of 47% in 2009.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans say abortion should be legal in most or all cases (64%), including majorities of Democrats (87%) and independents (66%), compared to 36% of Republicans. Among Christians, white evangelical Protestants remain the substantial outliers with 30% saying abortion should be legal in most or all cases, compared to 73% among Black Protestants, 70% among white mainline (non-evangelical) Protestants, 59% among white Catholics, 57% among Hispanic Catholics, and even 52% among Hispanic Protestants. Among those who follow non-Christian religions, 80% say abortion should be legal in most or all cases, while 85% of those who are religiously unaffiliated agree. Only a modest gender gap exists–more than six in ten men (61%) and women (66%) say abortion should be legal in most or all cases.
