A June 2011 survey from the Public Religion Research Institute finds that more than half of Americans say abortions are morally wrong, and that young Americans do not show any more support for abortion than those who are older.
As PPRI pollster Robert Jones said, “It’s not the kind of issue that one celebrates.”
In May of 2011 a Gallup poll found similar results, showing that Americans believe abortion is morally wrong and that all or most abortions should be illegal. That poll showed that by a 24% margin, 61%-37%, Americans take the pro-life view that abortions should either be legal under no circumstances or legal only under a few circumstances.
