US is Pro-life! (GOP must stay put. DNC should reconsider.)

Yesterday, I heard that the GOP was taling to the pro-choice crowd and that distressed me because, one cannot compromise on the right to life.  I didn't know what made Michael Steele think that he needs to accommodate that crowd because, acc. to the Gallup poll, the majority of the US population is pro-life.

The conservative shift in Americans’ views on abortion that Gallup first recorded a year ago has carried over into 2010. Slightly more Americans call themselves “pro-life” than “pro-choice,” 47% vs. 45%, according to a May 3-6 Gallup poll. This is nearly identical to the 47% to 46% division found last July following a more strongly pro-life advantage of 51% to 42% last May.


While the two-percentage-point gap in current abortion views is not significant, it represents the third consecutive time Gallup has found more Americans taking the pro-life than pro-choice position on this measure since May 2009, suggesting a real change in public opinion. By contrast, in nearly all readings on this question since 1995, and each survey from 2003 to 2008, more Americans called themselves pro-choice than pro-life.

Perhaps the Democrats can use this to their advantage and kick out their pro-choice base in exchange for pro-lifers.  It's something to think about considering the general values and attitudes of pro-lifers are akin to many of the Democrats alleged positions except for that one issue - abortion support.
