BY MATTHEW PICHT The most recent Gallup Values and Beliefs poll shows the number of Americans who identify as “pro-choice” is at an all-time low — and that “pro-life” Americans are at an all-time high. “In this particular sample–this May–42% of Americans now say they’re pro-choice, 51% pro-life.” The results have been warmly received by pro-life advocates. Kristi Hamrick of the public advocacy group Americans United for Life told Newsmax… “There is a growing uneasiness across America regarding the poorly regulated abortion industry and the presence of an abortion mandate … Americans value life, and this poll reflects that.” But skeptics are pointing to another statistic. The same poll shows 52% of Americans still support a woman’s right to an abortion in certain cases. MSNBC says it only reflects political differences, not ideological ones. “Whereas they might not like the label, they still absolutely believe that access to abortion in this country should be available for women.” Most of the responses in the poll fell along party lines — but ABC News notes… “The survey found 41 percent of Independents identified as ‘pro-choice,’…marking only the second time since 2001 that the number of ‘pro-life’ Independents has outweighed the number of ‘pro-choice’ Independents.” Gallup says that future polls will explore the abortion debate in greater depth by focusing on demographic trends.
