Moral Confusion: Americans hold a confusing mix of ideas about morality, according to a new Gallup poll that took a snapshot of 16 moral issues of the day. The poll found that 66% of Americans think divorce is okay, but that extra-marital affairs are not (93%). Killing yourself is very bad (81%), unless a doctor does it for you (44%). Homosexuality is considered morally wrong (52%), as are cloning animals (68%) and abortion (53%). But sex between an unmarried man and woman is fine (58%), as are having babies out of wedlock (51%) and human embryo stem cell research (54%). Some of the findings are highly suspect by conservative leaders. (PWB 5/22/03)
