Recent Gallup poll shows a trend towards preserving the life of the un born in America

Sixty-one percent of American adults—including some who describe themselves as “pro-choice”—told Gallup in a survey conducted May 5-8 that abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances.

The percentage saying abortion was “morally wrong” did not differ by gender, with 51 percent of men and 51 percent of women saying abortion was morally wrong. It did differ by age group, however. Younger Americans tended to have a tougher moral view of abortion than their elders.

One person commented at CNSNews and said...

This completely invalidates the claims of NOW and other feminist organizations who say that abortion is all about “women’s health”.

It also is inconsistent with the claim that it is men who push for “forcing” women to bear children. Feminists have classically tried to paint a picture of the poor exploited woman who becomes nothing but a vessel for pro-creation with a dominating man taking away her right to choose.

In truth, a woman who has had a baby has a much more reverent attitude toward life. She knows, from personal experience, that what resides in the womb after conception is much more than just some impersonal “product of pregnancy”. She knows that an intrauterine child is a living human being. She knows this because of a deeply personal and intimate relationship that develops between mother and child from the moment of conception.
