Blacks, Hispanics split on abortion
Catholic News Service

Although a majority of both African-Americans (51 percent) and Hispanics (61 percent) believe that having an abortion is morally wrong, the two groups split when it comes to whether abortion should be legal, a new poll shows.

While two-thirds of African-Americans (67 percent) think abortion should be legal in all or most cases, less than half of Hispanics (46 percent) do so, according to the poll.

Three-quarters of Hispanic Americans and 71 percent of African-Americans cited the economy as a critical issue. But they diverged on the issue of immigration, with 49 percent of Hispanics and 23 percent of black Americans naming it as a critical issue.
