Gallup: Churchgoers More Likely to be Pro-Life on Abortion

A new Gallup analysis of polls it has conducted on abortion from 2008-2011 finds churchgoers are much more likely to be pro-life on abortion than those who never attend or rarely attend religious services.

Regardless of whether the person surveyed by Gallup is a Democrat or Republican, the poll found those who attend weekly religious services are about twice as likely to self-identify as pro-life compared with respondents who say they seldom or never attend church services.

Looking at Republicans, weekly churchgoers say they are pro-life on abortion by an 84-11 percentage point margin. That 73 percent pro-life majority drops to a 66-29 percent pro-life split when Republicans who attend nearly weekly are considered. But, among Republicans who seldom or never attend church, the pro-life majority drops to one percent as those Republicans identify as pro-life versus “pro-choice” on a 47-46 percent split.
