Humans are moral beings; our morality defines our beliefs, guides our behavior, and rationalizes our actions. But what, exactly, do Americans believe to be morally acceptable? A recent Gallup poll asked Americans to declare the moral permissibility of 19 different activities. Of those morally ambiguous actions, the use of birth control was the most acceptable moral choice.
