Stangroom on Opposition to Abortion

Hostile as I generally am to surveys as a tool in ethics, they are able to give us interesting anthropological insights on topics of moral concern.

Jeremy Stangroom has been conducting a poll of people’s beliefs about the permissibility of abortion; and, though online polls are not wholly reliable, there seems to be some interesting results thrown up.  Unsurprisingly, religion seems to be an important demographic consideration; more surprising, perhaps, is that men seem to be more supportive of abortion rights than women.  The data are available here.
