.- A new poll by the firm Datafolha has revealed that only 3% of the Brazilian population considers abortion to be a “morally acceptable” act and an amazing 87% completely reject it.

Datafolha, which is owned by the Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper—considered by pro-lifers to be the most pro-abortion daily in the country—carried out the new poll to outline the new “profile of the Brazilian family.”

One of the conclusions of the poll is that compared with 1998, Brazilians today are more tolerant of gay marriage than they are of abortion.  More than 2,000 participated in the survey.

While in 1998 77% considered it very troubling that a son or daughter carried on a homosexual relationship, today that number is around 57%.  Nevertheless, the “most significant variation” of the poll is linked to the question of abortion.

“Those who considered the practice of abortion as something very grave were 61% in 1998 and 71% in 2007,” the firm said.

Folha de Sao Paulo called the results of the poll were “frightening,” but it acknowledged that “today only 3% of the population considers it ‘morally acceptable’ that a person undergoes an abortion, as opposed to 87% who consider it to be morally wrong.”

Pro-life analysts noted that the newspaper attempted to soften the impact of the poll by interviewing numerous militant abortion supporters.
