    1. About four in 10 Americans said they support abortion rights in a new Gallup poll — the lowest figure recorded by the organization since it began asking the question in 1995.

    2. Fully half of Americans, meanwhile, told Gallup they were against abortion rights.

    3. The results come as a rising number of religious groups file suit over the Obama administration's new contraception mandate, which is part of the 2010 healthcare law, arguing some forms of birth control are equal to abortion.

    4. ...revealed a six-point drop in the number of self-identified "pro-choice" Americans since the question was last posed in July 2011.

    5. ...the "pro-choice" identification had held a wide lead in the mid-1990s that narrowed gradually until 2009,...

    6. The issue will be relevant throughout the election season, and the Gallup results suggest that Republicans who oppose abortion rights could find key swing voters sympathetic to their position.

    7. Among political independents, the "pro-life" position outdoes the "pro-choice" one for only the second time since 2001, according to Wednesday's poll.

    8. Among Democrats, the "pro-choice" position also lost 10 points in that period, from 68 percent to 58.

    9. "Americans are increasingly identifying with the position of protecting human life," Dannenfelser said. "It’s not shocking that we’re seeing stronger pro-life opinions. This trend has been steady since the early '90s."

    This Gallup Poll is one of those 'supplementary' polls: not a Romney-Obama' poll but telling of the attitudes of the electorate.

    The hand-writing is on the wall for all to read.

    Is this seriously unexpected? The abortion movement is culling its support out of the human race. Those who dont support abortion will reproduce, while those who advocate abortion will use it and ensure that future generations wont.

    Basically..you'd probably find a record low number of people that would allow for minorities having the right to vote.

    That's not the point.

    Civil rights should never be determined by Majorities.

    i agree. But we aren't talking about civil rights. We are talking about abortion.

    I agree with President Reagan. Let each of the 'laboratories of democracy' decide...and let folks vote with their feet.

    For those of you who don't understand what she said, she is saying let the decisions be returned to the States. Where the Constitution says such decisions should be.
