Daily Digit: Majority of Americans believe abortion should be legal

Daily Digit: Majority of Americans believe abortion should be legalDaily Digit is the story behind the numbers that make our world work. Today we’re looking at abortions and the right to choose. In 1973, the Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade decriminalized abortion in the U.S. According to a new study by Pew Research Center, nearly 60% of Americans believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases. Unsurprisingly, the views about this issue vary widely between the political parties. Among the general public, the study shows there’s no significant difference in opinion between men and women. But support varies by race, with whites and blacks more accepting than members of Hispanic groups. And support is higher among individuals with higher education. Do you think abortion should be legal?
