Abstract:     
In recent years, abortion has become a salient issue in Mexican politics. In this study, we intend to use data from the World Values Surveys to acertain the correlates of attitudes toward abortion among Mexican mass publics. We will examine the effects of attitudinal variables (respect for life, attitudes toward sexual morality, feminism, ideology), religious variables (Catholicism, doctrinal orthodoxy, church attendance) demographic variables (gender, age, education, female labor force participation) and region. We estimate models with ordered logistic regression, while controlling for regional effects and other influences on attitudes.
