Looks like the Culture of Life is winning out over the pro-abortionists. 51% of Americans now consider themselves to be pro-life while only 42% call themselves pro-abortion.
From the Associated Press:
|The Gallup Poll reported Friday that 51 percent of Americans now call themselves “pro-life” rather than “pro-choice” on the issue of abortion, the first time a majority gave that answer in the 15 years that Gallup has asked the question.
The findings, obtained in an annual survey on values and beliefs conducted May 7-10, marked a significant shift from a year ago. A year ago, 50 percent said they were pro-choice and 44 percent pro-life — in the new poll, 42 percent said they were pro-choice.
The new survey showed that Americans remained deeply divided on the legality of abortion — with 23 percent saying it should be illegal in all circumstances, 22 percent saying it should be legal under any circumstances, and 53 percent saying it should be legal only under certain circumstances.
People are beginning to realize that abortion as a means of birth control is reprehensible and that responsible personal decisions before a pregnancy occurs are the policies that would best suit our younger generation.
I am happy to be a member of the Culture of Life and will never sway from my convictions.
