NRLC President Tobias provides deeper meaning of new Gallup Poll on abortion

You probably remember that for the first time in seven years, Gallup found more people identified as “pro-choice” (50%) than pro-life (44%). While, of course, NRLC would rather the numbers be reversed, Tobias explained that operationally, a majority is much closer to the pro-life position than the pro-choice position.

In other words when you go past self-identification to the question of what conditions people believe abortion should be legal in, you find that a majority say abortion “should be illegal in all circumstances” (19%) or legal “in only a few circumstances” (36%)–a total of 55%.

By contrast a total of just 42% said abortion should be legal “under any circumstances” (29%) or legal “in most circumstances” (13%).
