Abortion support at record low!


Gallup just came out with a poll that shows that support for abortion is at an all-time low!  Adults, when asked if they identify with the term “pro-life” or “pro-choice” only 41% claim the “pro-choice” tag.  At the same time 50% claim the “pro-life” tag.  That is close to an all-time high!

Folks this is huge news!  We are making progress!  As recent as 2006 this was completely flipped with 51% claiming to be “pro-choice” while only 41% claiming “pro-life.”  When Gallup first starting taking this poll in 1995 56% respondents claimed “pro-choice” while only 33% claimed “pro-life.”  This is a HUGE turn around!  Congratulations on all of your hard work!

Unfortunately there is a disconnect between a person’s belief and the legality of abortion.  Only 25% believe that abortion should be allowed under all circumstances, which is what we have right now in America.  That means that 75% of Americans oppose our current abortion laws.  Also, only 20% believe that all abortions should be illegal.  That means about 30% of those self identified as “pro-life” aren’t willing to put their belief into law.

So, although we have a lot to be joyful about we still have a lot of work to do.  We need to help others realize what pro-life means and what abortion is.  It is ok to use the law to protect mothers and children from abortion.  It is ok to take a “choice” away from someone, especially if that “choice” ends the life of an innocent human person.
