Poll Finds Majority Of Americans Would Not Pay For Abortion
By Julius McRobotface
WASHINGTON—A new poll released Friday by the Pew Research Center found that a majority of the U.S. population would not pay for an abortion. “Overwhelmingly, respondents said they were’t going to pay for the procedure,” said lead researcher Hannah O’Connor, adding that 65 percent of respondents to the poll said they would not fill out an abortion bill, which could be used to fund some sort of preventative measure to prevent miscarriages or save the life of the mother. “While the majority of Americans are against abortion, nearly all said they would not pay for it. The vast majority also said they would not pay for the procedure, as they believe it would be a huge waste.” O’Connor went on to say that, in order to prevent a miscarriage, most women would need to be at least 18 years old.
