Levels of support for changing the law on abortion in Ireland 2018, by gender

This statistic shows the level of support, by gender, for changing the law in Ireland to allow women the right to have an abortion (as of 2018). Although the majority of both male and female respondents support changing the law, the level of support is higher among female respondents. Male respondents who do not support changing the law make up 28 percent of respondents, the same percentage as the female respondents. It is the 13 percent of males who have no opinion that bring the support levels for male respondents below females in this survey.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: "The law in Ireland needs to change to recognize a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion if she wishes"?
