As the debate over abortion continues, here are key facts about Americans’ views on the topic, based on Pew Research Center polls.
While public support for legal abortion has fluctuated some in two decades of polling, it has remained relatively stable over the past five years. Currently, 59% say abortion should be legal in all or most cases, while 39% say it should be illegal in all or most cases.
Abortion has long been a contentious issue in the United States, and it is one that sharply divides Americans along partisan, ideological and religious lines.
Joe Biden is just the second Catholic president in U.S. history, after John F. Kennedy. Most U.S. adults know that Biden is Catholic, including majorities within both major political parties, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.
67% of U.S. Catholics say Joe Biden should be allowed to receive Communion during Mass, while 29% say he should not be allowed to do this.
Like U.S. adults overall, the majority of U.S. Catholics say abortion should be legal – at least in some cases.
Roughly one-in-five of the Christian congregations we analyzed in an eight-week period heard at least one sermon that mentioned abortion.
