Fluke or Trend? Poll Shows Support For Abortion Falls to Lowest Point Since 1995

These are some interesting results to a recent poll by Pew:

The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted March 31-April 21 among 1,521 adults, finds President Barack Obama's abortion advocacy could be sparking a shift to the pro-life side of the abortion debate.

The Pew poll found 46 percent of Americans say abortion should be legal in most cases (28%) or all cases (18%) and 44 percent of Americans believe that abortion should be illegal in most (28%) or all cases (16%).

That two point margin in favor of abortion is the lowest margin since 1995 as Pew, and other polling firms, have been asking the same polling question of Americans across the country every year.

This shift towards pro-life was shown in all age groups and most other demographics. Hopefully, this will become a trend and the shame of abortion will come to an end.
