Not Good America!!! Here in New Mexico the voters keep putting anti-life politicians in the legislature! Hard for me stomach that.

Almost half of Americans consider abortion to be “morally acceptable,” the highest percentage to think so in the past 20 of surveying the question, according to a new report by Gallup.
In the report released Wednesday, Gallup found that 47% of surveyed Americans view abortion as “morally acceptable,” the largest percentage recorded by Gallup since it began recording data on the question in 2001.
By contrast, 46% of surveyed Americans said they believe that abortion is “morally wrong,” or 10 percentage points less than the 56% of respondents who said the same in 2009.
“Americans have been typically more inclined to say abortion is morally wrong than morally acceptable, though the gap has narrowed in recent years,” wrote Gallup Research Consultant Megan Brenan.
