Thesis Defense: Abortion attitudes and subjective religiosity: Examining a Fourfold Typology

HPH 406I
June 21, 2017 @ 04:00 PM - 06:00 PM

Announcing the Final Examination of Christopher M. Guido for the degree of Master of Arts in the department of Sociology.

This is an exploratory study and examined the relationship between religious persons and attitudes toward legal abortion. This study presented a fourfold typology of respondents: (1) pro-choice, but not religious, (2) pro-choice and religious, (3) pro-life, but not religious, and (4) pro-life and religious. This study looked for characteristics of respondents in these categories. As previous research was examined on the relationship between religion and abortion attitudes, the question on what social characteristics make up the four categories of pro-choice and pro-life respondents was examined. Findings showed that social characteristics of respondents varied across categories of subjective religiosity and attitudes toward legal abortion typology. Recommendations were made for future research to utilize this data to continue exploring the relationship between social attitudes towards abortion alongside a person's religiosity.
