Early studies of race and abortion attitudes revealed significant variations; however, recent research has indicated this pattern has diminished. We examine abortion attitudes by race and religiosity. General Social Survey data are analyzed through logistic regression to compare race differences in abortion attitudes along three measures: affiliation, church attendance, and Biblical literalism. Contrary to previous research, African Americans are significantly more pro-choice than White Americans when measures of church attendance and Biblical literalism are included.
