A Gallup poll found for the first time that a majority of Americans identify themselves as pro-life.
A May survey, just released, asked the question: With respect to the abortion issue, would you consider yourself to be pro-choice or pro-life?
In 1995, 33 percent of respondents identified themselves as pro-life and 56 percent as pro-choice. But in May, 51 percent said they were pro-life and 42 percent, pro-choice.
Just a year ago, 50 percent of Americans surveyed identified themselves as pro-choice 44 percent as pro-life.
