The poll, taken on Spetember 24-27, 2012, also finds another 45% of voters saying abortion will be one of the important factors they consider in voting. This is one the highest percentages Gallup has seen in recent years. Pro-life voters are also more likely to say abortion is a major issue to them. By 49% to 43%, pro-life voters are more likely to say they will consider a candidate’s position on abortion as one of the important factors in arriving at their vote choice. Read more at GALLUP.com.
Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America, remarked “Despite what some in the press may say, now more than ever, voters are showing that LIFE is the issue upon which all other issues depend and will be important when determining which candidates deserve their votes. Abortion is not an issue that can simply be erased out of the conscience of Americans. This is why Students for Life has co-founded the I Vote Pro-Life First Coalition to ask all Americans to pledge to only vote for candidates who believe in the intrinsic value of all human life and sign-up to be a get out the pro-life vote this election. Many elections this November will come down to only a few hundred votes, and we must make sure our voices, who represent those 54 million Americans killed through legal abortion, are heard. Students for Life of America is recruiting 1,500 volunteers who will call or knock on the doors of 300,000 Americans before election day to personally deliver this message. ”
