In-Depth Survey Shows Nuance in How Americans Think About Abortion

Aug 31, 2020

You may think you know the contours of the abortion debate in the U.S. You likely have your own opinion on the matter. As much as we think of it as a black-and-white, two-sided issue, an in-depth survey of people in Tennessee and five other states reveals great nuance and variation in how people think about abortion from legal and moral standpoints.

The survey's lead researcher is Dr. Tricia Bruce, a sociologist who lives in Knoxville. She recently spoke with WUOT’s Brandon Hollingsworth.
