PRINCETON, N.J., May 23 (UPI) -- Forty-nine percent of Americans are for abortion rights and 45 percent are anti-abortion, a Gallup Poll indicates.
The new numbers, released Monday, aren't much changed from a year ago, Gallup said.
The poll indicated that 51 percent of Americans believe abortion is "morally wrong" while 39 percent say it is "morally acceptable."
Gallup said 50 percent of those polled said they think abortion should be legal under "certain circumstances" while 49 percent hold one of two other stances: 27 percent want abortion legal in all cases while 22 percent want it illegal in all cases.
The poll is based on telephone interviews conducted May 5-8 from a random sample of 1,018 adults, 18 or older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. The margin of error is 4 percentage points.
