Photo by Salvatore Giametta A new poll finds that 71% of registered California voters plan to vote for a state constitutional amendment protecting women's right to abortion. The poll released Wednesday by the Berkeley Institute for Government Studies found majorities of 89% of Democrats and 74% of independents plan to vote for Proposition 1, but only 35% of the state's Republicans. The proposition on the November ballot would prohibit the state from denying or interfering with a woman's right to an abortion and guarantees access to contraceptives.
