In August, the Pew Research Foundation released survey results which focused on the morality of abortion, and indicate that just about half of the population (49%) views abortion as flat-out immoral. But that does NOT mean that the remaining 51% view having an abortion as a morally acceptable choice. In fact, only 15% of Americans consider having an abortion morally acceptable, according to the survey, while 23% hold that it is not a moral issue.
While the religion that identifies individual Americans plays a significant role in predicting their stance on abortion, church attendance is a stronger indicator of where an individual will stand on abortion.
Notably, the survey also revealed that more women than men find abortion
morally unacceptable, at 50% versus 48%. The Republican versus Democrat
views reflect that 64% of Republicans view abortion as morally wrong,
while only 38% of Democrats do, with an even larger gap between those
who view themselves as conservative versus liberal, at 67% versus 31%
holding abortion to be morally wrong, respectively.
