WASHINGTON, November 28, 2002 ( – More than one-fifth or 22% of Americans in a nationwide Buffalo News/Zogby poll of 1,009 people say they are “less” in favor of abortion today than they were 10 years ago—twice the number (11 percent) who say they’ve become more pro-choice.  Among the other findings were that young people tend to be more opposed to abortion than the baby boomer generation (one-third of people aged 18 to 29 said abortion should never be legal, in contrast to about 23 percent for those aged 30 to 64 and about 20 percent for those aged 65+); people’s opposition to abortion doesn’t necessarily affect their voting choices; and that two-thirds said that if someone close to them were considering an abortion, they would advise against it; and that about one-third said their views on abortion had changed in the past decade.  Laura Echevarra of the National Right to Life Committee credited ultrasound technology that has provided a window for the younger generation on the developing life within.  For more coverage and public comments see:
