Today’s Gallup poll on abortion

An interesting Gallup poll on abortion was released today. Pro-life Americans surged recently. I think it’s a reaction to our recent abortion-friendly ideology shift.

I found two things more interesting.

First is how only 22% want a total abortion ban:

This is anther example of where theĀ Texas Republican Party platform, which also calls for a total abortion ban, is out of step with reality.

The second interesting part is the stances of women and men:

men_abortion

They’re hardly different: within 5 points either way.

Pro-choicers complain that men are telling women what to do with their bodies. In other words, they say men cannot regulate female-specific issues. Sorry, but the numbers show women and men have roughly equivalent positions! If you substituted male legislatures with female legislatures, you would get the same results.
