Abstract or Summary
  • Abortion has and continues to be a prominent social issue. The mixed beliefs over abortion originate from numerous factors that affect attitudes towards abortion. This study sought to understand if and how sex and education determine abortion attitudes. Using a sample of 1111 females and 828 males acquired from the 2006 General Social Survey with a response rate of 71%, respondents were asked of their highest educational degree and approval of abortion. The results here replicate what other studies have found, that no significant relationship exists between sex and abortion attitudes and also that education has a positive effect on abortion attitudes of males and females. The findings in this study indicate that education has a stronger effect on support for abortion for females than for males.
