In re: Gilgoff v. Schultz, the new study of conservative and liberal religious activists by Robbie Jones and John Green has this to say:

Abortion. Conservative religious activists are nearly universally opposed to legalized
abortion: 95% say either that abortion should be illegal in all cases (60%) or most cases
(35%). In sharp contrast, 80% of progressive religious activists say abortion should be
legal in all (26%) or most (54%) cases.

This tends to weaken the premise of Gilgoff’s orginal post. The centrists he identifies as religious progressives are clearly a minority of the breed–or, in some cases, just pursuing a common ground agenda in order to bring actual pro-life moderates on board.
