Twitter user Annoyed Cicada created a thread about abortion clinics and started a discussion on a very sensitive topic online. The Twitter user shared how, in their experience as an abortion clinic employee, some pro-life women get abortions themselves and allegedly try to justify this by lashing out at others. Scroll down to read Annoyed Cicada’s thoughts in their own words.

According to a recent Gallup poll, around 62 percent of Americans who are between the ages of 18 and 29 consider themselves to be pro-choice on the question of abortion. Meanwhile, only 37 percent of Americans over the age of 65 are pro-choice.

We know that this is a very sensitive topic, dear Pandas. Whether you are pro-choice or pro-life, remember to keep the discussion in the comment section civil and respect your fellow readers.

The same poll found that 48 percent of all interviewed American men identified as pro-choice and 46 percent thought of themselves as pro-life. Meanwhile, fewer women (43 percent) who took part in the poll considered themselves pro-choice; 51 percent identified as pro-life. In both cases, 6 percent of men and women had no opinion.

In May 2020, Gallup found that 20 percent of Americans believe that abortions should be illegal in all circumstances. Meanwhile, 29 percent thought that they should be legal under any circumstances; 50 percent believe that they should be legal, but only under certain circumstances.

When compared to 2019, the number of Americans supporting abortions without restrictions increased by 4 percent.

Even though the number of Americans who are either pro-choice or pro-life is more or less equal right now, this wasn’t always the case. According to Gallup, far more Americans identified themselves as supporters of the pro-choice position a couple of decades ago.

Back in 1995, Gallup found that 56 percent of respondents were pro-choice and only 33 percent were pro-life. Meanwhile, 5 percent had mixed opinions, 3 percent had no idea what the terms meant, and another 3 percent had no opinion whatsoever.
