Data from the Whose Body Is It Anyway? activity

Whose Body Is It Anyway? is here.

The activity asks people to state when abortion is morally justified. This is some of the data that's been collected to date. A couple of things to note: (a) It's a stretch too far to suggest that "morally justified" is equivalent to a position on the right to abortion (since it's entirely possible to think that abortion isn't morally justified, but that women should still have the right to abort a pregnancy if they so choose), but it'd be a bit of a sweat to change all the wording below, so bear that in mind; (b) in this context, supporting a woman's right to abortion means thinking that abortion either normally or always morally justified.
