Poll: Assisted Suicide #1 Social Issue

The latest national Gallup poll on social attitudes reports a new number one issue that most divides the American public. For years the issue has been abortion. Today it is physician assisted suicide (PAS). While 48 percent of the respondents said the matter was “morally objectionable all the time,” some 45 percent said it could be morally acceptable. The issue has gained sufficient attention that the nation’s Catholic bishops finally issued a policy statement deploring its increased public acceptance at their annual summer meeting in June in Bellevue, Washington/Chris Carlson, The Carlson Report.

Question: Which issue is more important to you -- abortion or assisted suicide?
