Where Do You Stand on Abortion? — Survey of the Day
While the abortion issue hasn’t gotten a lot of attention in the 2012 presidential campaign so far, a new poll from Gallup suggests there may have been a shift in Americans’ opinions on the controversial procedure.
The survey asked 1,024 adults “With respect to the abortion issue, would you consider yourself pro-life or pro-choice. Fifty percent of respondents said they were pro-life, whereas 41 percent identified themselves as pro-choice.
That’s the lowest percentage of Americans who have identified pro-choice since Gallup began asking that question in 1995. Just last July, a Gallup poll with the same wording had 47 percent of Americans answer that they were pro-choice.
