66 vs 10

66 vs 10

In 2003, Gallup did a survey which tellingly revealed that 66% of Americans believed abortion should be legal in the first trimester. Only 10% believed it should be legal in the third. More recent surveys indicate a decrease in the overall percentage of people who endorse legal abortion, but none of them have categorized the results by trimester as the 2003 survey did. Though the percentages are likely a bit different today than they were in 2003, the gap between people who support first trimester abortions and those who support third trimester abortions certainly remains. The basis of this discrepancy is not hard to pinpoint. There is a general perception that third trimester abortions kill a baby while first trimester abortions remove a mass of tissue that would otherwise become a baby. This gulf between the cultural perception of first-term abortion and third-term abortion is an indication that the broader support of first-trimester abortions is tied more to confusion than to cruelty.

Abort73's latest video, The Case Against Abortion: Prenatal Development, addresses the misconception that aborting earlier in pregnancy is morally superior to aborting later in peegnancy, by demonstrating that the major milestones in prenatal development happen much sooner than most people realize. This video, which is now a part of our page on Prenatal Development, simply compiles the most compelling photos, illustrations and direct video footage I know of to demonstrate that abortion, at any and every stage of pregnancy kills a rapidly developing, genetically-distinct human being. Take three minutes to watch the video and marvel with us at what takes place each and every time a child is conceived.
