Women Fear Efforts to Control Reproductive Rights: Poll

May 31, 2012

About three in 10 American women believe there is a "wide-scale effort to limit women's reproductive health choices and services," according to a new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation. Separately, the survey shows that fewer Americans support the 2010 health care reform law. 

The poll finds that more than 40 percent of women have taken action on reproductive health issues in the last six months, including trying to persuade others; donating money to a nonprofit organization that works on reproductive health issues; or contacting an elected official. Those numbers varied only a little by political ideology.

The Kaiser Family Foundation Health Tracking Poll surveys adults every month on their attitudes about health law and policy. This month's installment showed a slight dip in support for the 2010 health care law.

 

The poll typically shows a consistent divide, with about 40 percent for and against the statute. The new poll shows that only 37 percent of those surveyed have a favorable view of the law, a 5-percentage-point drop, just outside the poll's 3 percent margin of error. (For the poll's questions just for women, the margin of error was plus or minus 5 percent.)
