Despite the Catholic Church’s efforts to frame the federal government’s decision requiring health insurers to cover birth control as a matter of “religious freedom,” a new poll shows that almost 70 percent of the Americans believe the decision was a “matter of women’s health, not religious freedom.”
Polling released this weeks indicates that a strong majority of Americans, including a majority of Catholics, support President Obama's stanch on making few exceptions to the mandate that health insurance plans include access to no-cost contraceptives.
Despite the overwhelming acceptance of birth control among Catholics, the hierarchy of the Catholic Church continues to ask U.S. lawmakers to restrict access to contraceptive services.
