New Poll Shows Young People's Views on Abortion

The Public Religion Research Institute has released a wide-ranging poll looking at Millennials’ (young people between the ages of 18 and 29) attitudes and feelings toward abortion.

This new poll provides valuable and ample information regarding young people’s attitudes toward abortion and marriage equality. With 56 percent of Americans saying abortion should be legal in all or most cases, this poll shows increased support for legal abortion (up from 50 percent in a 2010 Gallup poll).

Significantly, 58 percent of Americans say that at least some health care professionals in their communities should provide legal abortions. Support levels are even higher among Millennials (68 percent), who especially think it is important to have health care professionals in their community providing legal abortion.  The poll also affirms that there has been stable and consistent majority support for Roe v. Wade over the years, which reflects the fact that it has been settled law for nearly 40 years.
