Anecdotally speaking, I am very confident that one’s position on abortion is generally very closely connected to your beliefs and world view. I discussed my thoughts on this in this fairly lengthy post talking about apologetics and the abortion issue. I would like to move slightly beyond the anecdotal. It isn’t quite to the point where I’m going to launch a formal study or anything, but I would like to hear people’s actual responses.
Christian or non-Christian, pro-life or not, I would like to hear your thoughts. Here are some questions you could answer:
- Have you ever changed your mind about abortion? What caused it?
- Did your beliefs drive your views on abortion?
- Do you agree that there is a connection between one’s belief system and their position on abortion? Why or why not, and how does your story show that?
Please email me your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. Though I may talk about the results, I will be sure not to ever include any names. Please spread the word about my little poll if you think the matter important.
