PerryUndem survey also finds that nearly three-fourths of voters overall oppose actions to "defund" Planned Parenthood and block patients from care at its health centers.

Today, a PerryUndem poll showed that 74% of voters — including 57% of people who voted for President Donald Trump — oppose actions that would prohibit people from accessing birth control, well-woman care, cancer screenings, and other preventive services at Planned Parenthood health centers.

Our takeaway: The vast majority of Americans support Planned Parenthood and understand that essential preventive health care should be available to anyone — regardless of how much money they make or where they live.

“This is just the latest poll showing that the American people clearly do not want to see Congress 'defund' Planned Parenthood. Even Trump’s own supporters are opposed to efforts to block patients from accessing high-quality, lifesaving care at Planned Parenthood”

—Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America

The latest PerryUndem survey follows a brand new FOX News poll showing that a clear majority of Americans (57%) have a favorable view of Planned Parenthood.

This PerryUndem poll and the FOX News poll both follow a whopping 20 other national polls that all show overwhelming support for Planned Parenthood. That includes a poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation, which found that 75% of Americans — including majorities of both Republican women and Republican men — support federal Medicaid reimbursement for Planned Parenthood to provide services such as contraception, STD testing and treatment, and cancer screenings.

Key Findings from the PerryUndem Poll

  • 74% oppose "taking away funds" from Planned Parenthood that are used for birth control, well-woman care, and cancer screenings for low-income women
  • 67% want to keep the Affordable Care Act (ACA) provision that requires insurance plans to cover birth control without a co-pay
  • 63% oppose restricting access to abortion care
  • 55% oppose banning Medicaid coverage for abortion care
  • 1% said that access to affordable birth control is an important part of equality for women
  • 87% want to keep the ACA provision that prohibits insurance companies from charging women more for their health insurance than men based on their gender
  • 84% want to keep the ACA provision that requires insurance plans to cover preventive care, like well-woman visits, without a co-pay

“We’ve made tremendous gains in this country, including a 30-year low in unintended pregnancies and a historic low in teen pregnancies, thanks to expanded access to reproductive health care and birth control. Now is not the time to roll back that progress."

—Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America

The Senate delayed the vote to demolish health care for millions and cut off Planned Parenthood patients from care. But we can't let up! Let's keep their phones ringing off the hook. 

Fight for Birth Control Access
