Women Are More Pro-Life Than Men

In a CBS news poll, December 17 – 20th, 2010, the following questions were asked. The answers were broken down between men and women. Men and women were asked if they agreed with the following statements. This is the percentage of people who agreed to each one.

Abortion should be generally available

37% men

35% women

It should be available, with limits

40% men

40% women

It should not be permitted

18% men

21% women

Cited in the book Noel Meriano, ed. Abortion (New York: Greenhaven Press, 2010)

We can see that the numbers are very similar, with more men than women supporting abortion on demand and more women wanting it to be illegal in all cases. This shows that abortion is not overwhelmingly supported by women; they are divided on the issue, and so are men
