New Survey: Most Americans Want Health Care Reform, Oppose Abortion Coverage, Support Conscience Protection Laws
Date:9/22/2009

Two to one: U.S. adults favor 'reform to provide affordable health insurance for all'

Sixty-eight percent do not want abortion coverage in their own policy, whether public or private

Sixty-three percent favor keeping conscience protection laws

WASHINGTON, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A nationwide survey commissioned by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has found widespread public opposition to including abortion in health care reform and majority support for conscience rights protection - views shared by those who favor efforts to pass health care reform.

Conducted by International Communications Research (ICR) from September 16-20, 2009, the phone survey of 1,043 U.S. adults found that 60 percent favor - and only thirty percent oppose - "efforts to pass health care reform to provide affordable health insurance for all." Focusing on that sixty percent, the survey found that:

  • Sixty percent of those favoring reform oppose - and only 25 percent support - "measures that would require people to pay for abortion coverage with their federal taxes."
  • By a 49-39 percent plurality, those who favor reform oppose "measures that would require people to pay for abortion coverage with their health insurance premiums"; and
  • Among those favoring reform, those who favor maintaining "current federal laws that protect doctors and nurses from being forced to perform or refer for abortions against their will" outnumber those who oppose keeping such laws in place by a margin of two to one (60-30).

Opposition to abortion coverage was somewhat stronger in the total sample of U.S. adults - for example, 67 percent of the total sample opposed requiring people to pay for abortion coverage through their taxes and 56 percent oppo
