Most Americans still oppose the reasons for which almost all abortions are performedBy Dave Andrusko
NRL News Today - June 11, 2018
Also more people still consider abortion morally wrong than morally acceptable, Gallup reports
Twice in the last two weeks NRL News Today posted about an upcoming series of six stories that Gallup said it would be posting “documenting Americans’ latest views on abortion, including deep dives into gender and generational trends”[here and here].
Today’s initial Gallup story results are important but are more like a toe in the water than a head-first dive.
In summary form, the three big takeaways, according to Jeffrey M. Jones, are
- 48% identify as pro-choice, 48% as pro-life
- Half continue to say abortion should be legal in some circumstances
- Slightly more say it is morally wrong than morally acceptable
Let’s dive deeper than Gallup does into its latest results of interviewing 1,024 adults “May 1-10 in Gallup’s annual Values and Beliefs poll.”
