As House Republicans take the first step today towards voting on a bill that would repeal the abortion-funding ObamaCare bill pro-life groups oppose, a new Gallup poll finds a plurality of Americans support that effort.
Approximately 46 percent of U.S. voters support the repeal effort, some 40 percent oppose it, and 14 percent say they do not have an opinion yet on repealing the government takeover of the health care industry.
“Americans’ broadly divided opinions on repealing the healthcare legislation are in line with Gallup polling from much of the past two years that showed the bill struggling to gain majority public support both before and shortly after its passage. Polls conducted more recently have shown Americans generally more opposed to than in favor of the healthcare law,” Gallup noted.
Gallup conducted the January 4-5 poll as the House casts its first vote today on adopting the rules for debate on the repeal bill that is expected to come up for consideration next week. Leading pro-life groups like the National Right to Life Committee have already endorsed the repeal effort because the Obamacare law allows for taxpayer funding of abortions and promotes health care rationing.
