The majority of adults in the United States view changing one's gender as “morally wrong," according to a new Gallup Poll.

Gallup described “changing one’s gender as a “contentious” topic among Americans.

The survey asked respondents:

“Regardless of whether or not you think it should be legal, for each one, please tell me whether you personally believe that in general, it is morally acceptable or morally wrong. — Changing one’s gender.”

Fifty-one percent said it is “morally wrong," while 46 percent said it was "morally acceptable."

But the practice is more accepted among younger, more liberal generations.

55 percent of those 18-29 consider it “morally acceptable."

51 percent of those 30-49 consider it “morally acceptable.”

Unsurprisingly, those on the left are more likely to consider it acceptable, 78, compared to 76 percent of conservatives who believe it is wrong.

Moderates are split on the subject at 48 percent each.

0.6 percent of U.S. adults identify as transgender, the survey found.

The survey also found that Americans’ perspectives on topics such as abortion to the death penalty are “strongly related to (and perhaps influenced by) their own political ideology."

One of the most polarizing issues is changing gender and abortion with 55- and 54- point gaps, respectively, conservative's and liberal's view them as morally acceptable.

There are notable ideological differences on all issues but animals medical testing.

But majorities of liberals and conservatives are on the same side of the issue in 10 of 20 cases.

On almost all of the rest, liberals find the practice morally acceptable, while Republicans disagree.

The survey, taken May 3-18, 2021, among 1,016 adults, has a margin of error of +/- 4 percent.
