30 May Good News for the Unborn: Most Americans Pro-Life
May 2012, a recent Gallup Poll on abortion found that 50% of American adults label themselves as “Pro-life”, while only 41% of American’s are labeling themselves as “Pro-choice”.
52% of Americans believe that abortion should be legal only under some circumstances, while 25% believe abortion should be legal under all circumstances and 20% of American’s believe abortion should be illegal. When asked if abortion should be legal under most or only a few circumstances, 39% said that abortion should be legal under only a few circumstances. That is: 59% of Americans believe that abortion should only be legally available under a few circumstances or illegal altogether.
Pro-life groups attribute this change to science and technology. When one can view their baby, and see its beating heart at just 2 month gestation, there is no question that there is a person present.
