U.S. Majority Oppose Abortion
It this becomes a trend
it would be hard for congress
to expand abortion availability.
— The Gallup Poll reported today that 51% of Americans now call themselves pro-life rather than pro-choice on the issue of abortion, the first time a majority gave that answer in the 15 years that Gallup has asked the question.
The findings, obtained in an annual survey on values and beliefs conducted May 7-10, marked a significant shift from a year ago. A year ago, 50% said they were pro-choice and 44% pro-life — in the new poll, 42% said they were pro-choice.
