61% Oppose Tax-Funded Abortions… 63% Oppose Most or All Abortions

A recent CNN poll found that 61% of Americans oppose tax-funded abortions and 63% of Americans oppose most or all abortions.
But the Obama Administration told reporters that they will strip the Stupak Amendment that bans tax-funded abortions from their nationalized health plan.

As Congress remains embroiled in a massive debate over whether to force Americans to pay for abortions through the new government-run health care programs, a new CNN poll finds 61 percent oppose government funding abortions with public dollars.

The poll found six in ten Americans favor a ban on using federal funds for abortions, such as the Stupak amendment recently added to the health care bill in the House.

The new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released today shows 61 percent oppose taxpayer funding of abortions while just 37 percent are supportive.


The CNN poll goes further and finds that a majority of Americans, by a 51 to 45 percent margin, believe women should be required to use their own money to pay for abortions even if they have private health insurance and no government money is involved. They did not think health insurance should pay for abortions.
