 WASHINGTON, D.C. — Americans’ ratings of the morality of 19 behaviors are little changed since last year. Using birth control and getting divorced remain the most “morally acceptable” actions, and having extramarital affairs and cloning humans are seen as the most “morally wrong.”

In addition to birth control (92%) and divorce (81%), solid majorities of Americans view eight other behaviors as morally acceptable. These include premarital sex, gay or lesbian relations, gambling, having a baby outside of marriage, stem cell research, buying and wearing clothing made of fur, doctor-assisted suicide, and the death penalty.

Meanwhile, a slim majority of Americans (52%) think abortion is morally acceptable, marking the first time in Gallup’s 22-year trend that more than half view it that way. Medical testing on animals is also viewed by 52% of U.S. adults as acceptable from a moral standpoint.

On the other end of the spectrum, along with extramarital affairs (9%) and cloning humans (11%), less than half of Americans think suicide, polygamy, pornography and cloning animals are acceptable morally. Public opinion is about evenly divided on sex between teenagers.
