Since SPL's presence at the American Atheists Convention, we have had multiple people accuse us of being a secretly religious/Christian group, and insist that there is no such thing as a non-religious pro-lifer.
According to this recent Gallup report, 19% of atheists, agnostics, and those with no religious preference identify as "pro-life." While Gallup's findings confirm a trend we already knew (there is a strong correlation between religiosity and pro-life views) it also confirms what we've been saying all along:
|"We are here! We are here! WE ARE HERE!"|
By Gallup's stats, 1 out of every 5 non-religious people considers themselves pro-life. A minority, to be sure, but certainly not non-existent. Over 34 million American adults identify as atheist, agnostic, or no religion; that means roughly 6.5 million non-religious pro-lifers.
