Gallup poll results: “I don’t know what I mean!”
The abortion industry has been gloating over a new Gallup poll that claims half of all Americans identify themselves as “pro-choice.” But the devil for the pro-aborts is in the details.
You don’t have to drill down very far to see that 55% of Americans agree that abortion should be completely illegal or legal only in a few circumstances. Only 42% say abortion should be legal under most or all circumstances.
Apparently, many Americans don’t know what they mean by “pro-choice” or “pro-life.” For example, 4% of those who described themselves as “pro-choice” said that abortion should be illegal in all circumstances. Not sure what they were smoking. (Come to think of it, that 4% is roughly equal to the percentage of Americans who live where marijuana is legal; hmmmmm.)
Anyway, a full 23% of self-described “pro-choicers” said abortion should be legal in only a few circumstances. Hardly your classical “pro-choice” position.
Always look at the details.
