61% of Catholics support abortion, study shows

by Renata

Pew Research published data showing that 61% of Catholics in America believe abortion should be legal in all or most circumstances, which roughly aligns with the average American’s opinion on abortion procedures. Interestingly, 63% of Hispanic Catholics believe in abortion in all or most cases as opposed to 59% of white Catholics.

Of course, we have to add that Catholics who attend mass regularly do not hold the same view. Only 34% of Catholics who attend church regularly support abortion. Meanwhile, 68% of those who seldom attend mass support abortion in most cases.
Pro-life scholar Michael New commented on these findings on X, saying, “Church attendance tells us far more about abortion attitudes than denomination.
