Consistent with the male predisposition for violence, they are more supportive of abortion on demand!



The National Organization for Women sells buttons that say, "If men got pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament." Yes, reproductive rights would be much more secure if it wasn't for misogynist men. The GSS has asked respondents since 1972 if abortion should be allowed for any reason if a women wants it. It may be difficult to see it in these graphs (men above, women below), but of the 19 years that the question was asked, women had a higher percent in favor compared to men exactly 3 times. Overall all the years, 41.2% of men support abortion on demand, versus 39.2% of women. And why wouldn't men support it more: they like sex without responsibility even more than today's women.

My assumption is that the question has religious overtones, and men are less religious than women.

Also look at questions like PRAYER and GRASS. There's a consistent pattern of men being less religious and more libertarian compared to women.

Thanks for posting this.

It doesn't get pointed out enough, but this disparity has been with us for a long with men being more pro-choice. It drives me crazy when I hear people, especially conservative men, blame abortion and the culture on women.

This goes hand in hand with the other prevailing notion that feminism made our culture godless and hyper-sexual... going back to the early 20th century the percentage of men reporting that premarital sex as not wrong was far, far greater than for women. Both of those increased throughout the years and the gap has closed somewhat, but women are religious prudes in comparison! Feminism was a johnny-come-lately movement within Liberalism.
