The 12-percentage point gap between the youngest and oldest Americans identifying as pro-choice (56% vs. 44%, respectively), is mirrored in a 12-point gap in the two groups’ belief that abortion should be legal under any circumstances (37% vs. 25%) and a 13-point gap in those saying abortion is morally acceptable rather than morally wrong (51% vs. 38%).

These double-digit age differences exceed the three- to four-point differences Gallup finds by gender on the same questions, suggesting abortion is more of a generational than a gender issue.
