Are We Getting More Progressive on Abortion?

Politico on the Gallup news that self-identification as “pro-choice” is at an all-time low

Drilling down, we find that 52% of those polled do believe abortion should be legal in some circumstances, while 20% believe it should always be legal.

I’m not trying to be cute with words like “progressive.”   I’ve said here before that I believe there are solid “pro-life” arguments to be made from the progressive ethos.  As we clearly progress nationally on other issues (marriage equality, for one)  I wonder what these numbers will look like a few years down the road.
