QUICK HIT: Looking for Context on that Gallup Poll?

Last week, Gallup released a new survey that shows more Americans identify as “pro-life” than pro-choice for the first time since the survey started in 1995.

Eric Zorn from the Chicago Tribune wrote an interesting piece this morning that provides a little more context to the poll.  It’s worth checking out

It’s also worth noting that these polling results don’t square with the results from the last two election cycles, when Americans elected a pro-choice president and picked up a net gain of eight pro-choice seats in the U.S. Senate and 44 in the U.S. House. 

You can also watch NARAL Pro-Choice America President Nancy Keenan on MSNBC this week talking about President Obama’s speech at Notre Dame and how we can find common ground on the abortion issue.
