Majority Favors Abortion Ban in Health Care Bill

By on 1.3.10 | 3:31PM

According to Rasmussen Reports:

Fifty-three percent (53%) of voters favor a ban on abortion coverage in any health insurance plan that receives federal subsidies. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 40% are opposed to such a ban in the proposed health care legislation now before Congress.

Those figures include 39% who Strongly Favor it and 26% who are Strongly Opposed.

There are some provisions in the health care plan before Congress that are more popular and some that are less popular but none as controversial. The reason for the controversy is that attitudes on the provision cut across the lines of support and opposition for the overall bill.
