The survey was conducted by Magid for Save the Storks, which provides mobile pro-life units to life-supporting organizations throughout the U.S. to serve women and encourage them to bring their babies to term. Paul Isaacs, president of Save the Storks, explains that the survey, conducted in May 2019, reveals both good and bad news.

"Sixty-seven percent of Americans believe that life begins at or before the heartbeat," he begins. "But some of the more troubling things that we found were things like 58 percent of Catholics … 51 percent of mainline protestants believe that abortion is a private issue just for women to determine … and 17 percent of Catholics would consider an abortion."

Isaacs offers his thoughts on those "troubling" findings.

"I think we have to look [at] ourselves in the mirror and [recognize] we may have failed to disciple the next generation or even our own children or myself and my peers," he suggests. "We probably had a problem with the discipleship with a good Christian worldview and a proper pro-life ethic."

First and foremost, Isaacs suggests each person take responsibility for teaching that ethic, especially in their own homes with their own children. While that might be a slow process, he argues that, in time, society could turn the corner and adopt a true pro-life ethic throughout the majority of society.
