ACCEPTANCE OF ABORTION GROWS SLIGHTLY IN NEW GALLUP POLL, BUT IS STILL SHORT OF MAJORITY


In its annual poll of Americans’ attitudes towards morally-charged subjects, the Gallup organization found that abortion rose in acceptance for the second year in a row (after hitting an all-time low in 2009.) The percentage of those who found abortion morally acceptable is now at 39 percent, still well below a majority. Among other constitutionally relevant issues that appeared on the poll, doctor-assisted suicide was the most divisive, with 45 percent finding it acceptable and 49 percent unacceptable. A full 62 percent were comfortable with stem cell research while only 12 percent found the cloning of a human being acceptable. You can view a summary of the findings here.
