A recent Gallup survey has shed some light on current religious affiliations and the divided opinions Americans have on the issue of abortion.
Recent polling of nearly 180,000 interviews nationwide indicates that the public is divided almost evenly on the topic of abortion. Religious views that often impact an individual’s stance on that issue however differ considerably from state-to-state and region-to-region. Non-Catholic Christians continue to be in the majority with adherence of over 54% of the country. The highest concentration of this religious denomination is in the Deep South of the United States, often referred to as the “Bible Belt”.
