LifeSiteNews reports on the latest Gallup poll on abortion which found that 51% of Americans call themselves “pro-life” and 42% “pro-choice.”
A year ago, 44% were pro-life and 50% were pro-choice. The shift in attitudes towards the pro-life viewpoint is backed up in two other recent polls.
American Life League president Judie Brown told LifeSiteNews:
“the poll shows that grassroots-level pro-life education is paying off, and also that “people have begun to see through the deception of politicians who claim that they favor a woman’s right but in fact don’t favor anybody’s rights, except the right to be re-elected.”
“Regarding the sharp upturn in pro-life identification over the past year, Brown agreed that the heavily pro-abortion agenda of President Obama has likely worked in favor of the pro-life movement.”
