New Study of American Morals

HT: Gene Veith

Gallup has released a new study of Americans’ moral beliefs, and it’s full of surprises and good-news/bad-news.  Acceptance of abortion (43%), same sex relations (60%), stem-cell research on human embryos (60%), and physician assisted suicide (53%) is actually down from last year. Though a majority still narrowly support suicide by doctor, only 18% consider suicide in general to be a moral option.  While 67% believe that sex between unmarried men and women is moral, only 37% think it’s OK for teenagers to have sex, and only 10% believe marital affairs are acceptable. And only 34% believe in the morality of pornography.
