Most Americans want the landmark abortion ruling Roe vs. Wade to stay put — but they’re far from satisfied with the current state of abortion laws.

Some 77% of Americans want the U.S. Supreme Court to keep Roe v. Wade in place, according to an NPR/PBS News/Marist poll released Friday, while just 13% want it overturned and another 11% are unsure.

But support for upholding the 1973 decision isn’t that simple. Many folks still would like additional restrictions or policy changes. The 77% of Americans who broadly support Roe break down into various categories: 26% want SCOTUS to keep Roe v. Wade but add more restrictions, while 14% support keeping Roe but reducing some restrictions. Another 21% would want to see Roe expanded to secure abortion rights under any circumstance, and 16% want to keep it the way it is, according to the poll of 944 U.S. adults, 783 of whom were registered voters.
