Majority of voters in online poll choose pro-life as most important issue


Priests for Life



NEW YORK -- Fifty-two percent of voters who took part in a Priests for Life online poll last week said pro-life is a priority as they vote.

A total of 2,227 people responded to the poll, which asked them to identify – by an open question rather than multiple choice – the top issue that will influence their vote, and whether they intend to vote Democrat or Republican.

Of that total, 1,173, or 52.6 said the pro-life issue was their number one priority.

Other issues that were listed as priorities included traditional marriage and religious freedom.

More than 81 percent, or 1,818 people, said they intend to vote Republican.

“I think these results bode well for our country,” said Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “In many past elections, polling conducted by the National Right to Life Committee has shown that a significant portion of the electorate takes the abortion issue as a major consideration in casting their vote, and that of those who do so, pro-life people outvote abortion supporters by a two to one margin. Our poll is not a scientific one (it is based simply on an email subscription list), but the findings are consistent.”


Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
