Many people assume that religion affects individuals’ opinions on social issues because of religion’s influence on morals and values. I analyze two issues with a large impact on society-abortion and euthanasia. Using data from the 2000 General Social Survey I analyze the relationship between religion and peoples views, and I expand this to look for trends within gender, age, race, education, and other social factors.
