Last week Gallup released its annual Values and Beliefs poll.
The poll shows 47% of Americans surveyed believe abortion is morally wrong while 44% believe it is morally acceptable.
Pollsters noted that of the 21 moral issues they considered in the survey, liberals and conservatives were most divided on abortion. Seventy percent of liberals said abortion is morally acceptable while only 18% of conservatives said it was morally acceptable.
Gallup also examined Americans’ attitudes about physician-assisted suicide.
The percentage of Americans who believe physician-assisted suicide is morally acceptable has fallen from 57% in 2017 to 51% this year.
It’s encouraging to see nearly half of Americans morally object to abortion
A recent poll by CBS News found most Americans believe abortion ought to be either completely illegal or legal under fewer circumstances than it currently is.
These findings just go to show that slowly but surely we are winning the fight to protect innocent human life.
