41% of Americans Identify as "Pro-Choice"

Gallup’s survey of Americans regarding their views on abortion has revealed an interesting trend.  Whereas in 1995, 56% of Americans identified as “pro-choice” and only 33% identified as “pro-life,” today, the percentages have almost completely flip-flopped.  Gallup reports that, currently, 50% of Americans regard themselves as “pro-life,” while only 41% are “pro-choice.”  That said, American’s views on the legality of abortion do not represent their self-identifications.  52% believe that abortion should be legal under certain circumstances.  On the other hand, the more polarizing views that abortion should be legal under any circumstances or illegal in all cases garnered only 25% and 20% of Americans’ opinions respectively.
