Fifth US Poll This Month Shows Pro-Life Trend


The poll found a plurality, 47 percent, took a pro-life position while 45 percent said they were "pro-choice" when it comes to abortion.

However, a second question, asking respondents to delineate their specific position on when abortion should be legal, found a 14 percent pro-life majority.

The poll found 55 percent take one of three pro-life positions saying that all abortions should be prohibited (10%), abortion should be legal only in cases to save the life of the mother (16%), or abortions should only be legal in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother (29%).

A number of lefty commenters have tried to explain away the Gallup Poll.

In fairness, one positive poll can be a blip.

Five positive polls from five different organizations is a trend.

It is becoming more and more part of the US culture to accept the unborn as people.

It will only be a matter of time before this becomes part of the Canadian mentality.
