Planned Parenthood Funding And Obamacare Gets Majority Support Of Voters
President Donald Trump, in his first week at the office, is working hard to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare, but a new poll strongly suggests that majority of the Americans do not support it. The finding came out on the same day as the Anti-Abortion March for Life on Friday in Washington. Also, the survey found that an overwhelming majority of voters, 84 percent, believe that Congress should have a replacement plan first before repealing Obamacare.
Similarly the poll found that 62 percent oppose cutting off federal funding to Planned Parenthood, while only 31 percent support it, the Salon says. When specifically asked if they support the idea that government funding would only go to non-abortion services like cancer screenings, 80 percent voters say they don't support it, and only 12 percent say they would still support it. When it came to abortion, 28 percent of respondents believe abortion should be legal in all cases, while 36 percent believe it should be legal in most cases, 22 percent believe it should be illegal in most cases, and 9 percent think it should be illegal in all cases.
The survey's findings were released last week as the Anti-abortion March was being held. The demonstration had Vice President Mike Pence speak at the event. He is the highest-profile government official to personally give a speech at the annual event.
The findings of the survey supported the concerns of many about the future of family planning and other health services after Trump imposed a "global gag rule" on abortion this week. According to the Politico , the rule pushes to defund Planned Parenthood and other health care programs that most Americans rely on for basic health care, sparking a broader debate over the future of health care laws, including the fate of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as “Obamacare.”
