Gallup Poll: Most Americans now pro-life

The first time I participate in a Gallup Poll I change history!

Last week, I got a phone call from Gallup asking for ten minutes of my time in order to participate in a poll. The first question was about whether I approved of President Obama, so wanting my voice to be heard on this issue, I persevered to the end. Almost every demographic question possible was asked including: “Do you consider yourself pro-life or pro-choice?”

Imagine my surprise about a week later when I read this news item:

The latest Gallup poll on abortion found that 51 percent of those questioned call themselves “prolife” – the first time a majority of US adults have identified themselves as such since Gallup began asking this question in 1995 … Results are based on telephone interviews with 1,015 national adults, aged 18 and older, conducted May 7-10, 2009.

This might seem like a trite statement to say, “I changed history,” but people really are influenced by public opinion polls. If the trend continues the pro-aborts can no longer say, “The vast majority of Americans are pro-choice!”

If there is a lesson to be learned here it is that if you want to be a world changer, you must often participate in the process, no matter how mundane it sometimes feels.
