Abortion Judged Morally Wrong by US Majority Survey Shows Increasing Pro-Life Trend

NEW HAVEN, Connecticut, JAN. 22, 2010 (Zenit.org).- As Americans mark today's 37th anniversary of the U.S. court decision that legalized abortion, a new poll shows that the country's majority thinks killing the unborn is morally wrong.

 

The Knights of Columbus reported these findings from a survey it conducted over the last few weeks with The Marist Institute for Public Opinion.

 

It found that 56% of Americans consider abortion to be "morally wrong."

 

Breaking up the number by generations, 58% of people aged 18-29 consider abortion to be wrong while some 60% of those aged 30-44 fell into this category.

 

Of the "baby boomer" generation, aged 45-64, 51% agreed with this statement, while 62% of those 65 and over answered similarly.

 

Of those Americans who did not judge abortion as being wrong, 19% said that it was "morally acceptable," while 25% stated the belief that it is "not a moral issue."

 

The press release noted that these surveys, also held in October 2008 and July 2009, have been "tracking an increasing trend toward the pro-life position -- a trend confirmed by Gallup and Pew surveys."

 

Advances

 

The supreme knight, Carl Anderson, noted that "younger people in even greater numbers than their parents see abortion as something morally wrong."

 

"America has turned a corner and is embracing life," he added.

 

Anderson affirmed that "advances in technology show ever more clearly that an unborn child is completely a human being."

 

He continued: "That, coupled with the large number of Americans who know one of the many people who has been negatively affected by abortion are certainly two of the reasons that Americans are increasingly uncomfortable with Roe v. Wade's legacy of abortion, and with abortion generally.

 

"The majority of Americans now understand that abortion has consequences, and that those consequences are not good."

 

The communiqué noted that this abortion poll is part of a larger survey that will be publicized soon.
