This thesis investigates the predictors of attitudes toward abortion using the variables of sex, race, political ideology, age, religion, church attendance, and education. Findings are based on the 1994 National Opinion Research Center General Social Survey. I found that support for abortion is related to race, political ideology, age, religion, church attendance, and education. The findings are congruent with past research . Attitudes t oward abortion can best be explained with functional theory. A longitudinal study or including other variables are further directions in which research could go . Attitudes toward abortion are far from reaching consensus in society.
