Most Americans oppose plans to cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood: poll

While Republicans are inclined to cut off federal funding for Planned Parenthood, a new poll released on Friday indicated that almost two-thirds of American voters oppose any such move.

According to a new Quinnipiac poll, nearly 66 per cent of voters told pollsters that they oppose cutting off federal funding for Planned Parenthood, and even a larger majority, 70 per cent, told them that they agree with the 1973 Supreme Court ruling on Roe vs. Wade that legalized the procedure abortion.

The poll also revealed that the procedure is enjoying significant support. Nearly 28 per cent and 36 per cent of the respondents expressed support for abortion in most cases and in all cases, respectively.

Merely 22 per cent of the respondents opposed the controversial procedure, saying it should be illegal in most cases. Another 9 per cent said it should be illegal inn all cases.

Separately, more than one hundred people gathered in East Denver on Saturday to protest the produce of abortion. It was for the first time in more than four decades that the annual “March for Life” wasn’t outside the state Capitol.
