A new nationwide survey shows that Americans oppose plans by the Obama Administration to require all health insurance plans to cover abortion-inducing drugs.

A new Rassmussen opinion poll says that 46% oppose the mandate that every health insurance policy pay for all contraceptives approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration. 39% of those surveyed said they support the plan.

The federal mandate, a component of President Obama’s national health care legislation, would require that all policyholders subsidize abortifacients like Ella and Plan B, commonly marketed as “emergency contraception.” The Rassmussen survey made no mention of abortion-inducing drugs, which would have likely resulted in even more negative results.
