Hispanics born overseas more pro-life than Hispanics born in the US
The PRRI report found a considerable gap in views on abortion within the Latino community that appeared to be based on country of origin.
While 57 percent of Hispanics born in the United States responded that they believe abortion should be legal in most or all cases, only 33 percent of Hispanics born outside of the United States agreed.
“Place of birth also stratifies age groups. More than six in ten (63%) young Hispanics ages 18-29 born in the United States support abortion, compared to just 38% of young Hispanics born outside of the United States,” reported PRRI.
“Among seniors ages 65 and over, 44% of U.S.-born Hispanics favor abortion legality, compared to just under one in three (31%) foreign-born Hispanic seniors.”
PRRI also found that Hispanics were more likely than the general population to believe that abortion should be illegal in all cases (23 percent of Latinos vs. 15 percent of general population) and less likely to believe that abortion should be legal in all cases (19 percent of Latinos vs. 23 percent of general population).
