New Poll Shows Support For Abortion Is Declining

A new Pew study found that support for legalized abortion has dropped precipitously since last August, from 54% to 46%. Here's a portion of the summary from

The proportion saying that abortion should be legal in all or most cases has declined to 46% from 54% last August. The decline in support for legal abortion has come entirely in the share saying abortion should be legal in most cases (from 37% to 28%); 18% say abortion should be legal in all cases, which is virtually unchanged from last August (17%). Currently, 44% say abortion should be illegal in most (28%) or all cases (16%), up slightly since last August (41%).

Interestingly, the Pew study was conducted (March 31-April 21), which was right in the middle of the Red Envelope Day campaign. I'm not saying there's a link. After all, we've seen public opinion on the question of whether abortion should be legal even up before. Still, it's interesting to consider.

What do you think? Could the Red Envelope Day campaign have had such an effect? Or has President Obama's pro-abortion actions in his first 100 days galvanized a nation to rethink her pro-abortion mindset?

Is it possible that the creator of Red Envelope Day Christ Otto was on to something when he said a revival is coming to America?
