Survey: 56% of Americans oppose mandatory abortion coverage

Catholic World News - September 23, 2009

A survey of 1,043 Americans conducted by International Communications Research on behalf of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has found that 56% of Americans are opposed to “measures that would require people to pay for abortion coverage with their health insurance premiums.” Those who favor health care reform oppose required abortion coverage by a 49%-39% margin. Survey respondents favor conscience protection legislation by a wider margin and in general support “efforts to pass health care reform to provide affordable health insurance for all” by a two-to-one ratio.
