Poll: Young in GOP Favor Obamacare Contraception Coverage

Tuesday, 31 Mar 2015 12:17 PM

Two out of three young Republicans believe that every adult woman should have access to affordable birth control, a new study shows.

The report by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy was released on Tuesday by Echelon Insights, an opinion research and analysis firm founded by two Republicans, The Huffington Post reported.

The poll also showed that nearly 50 percent of the young Republicans in the survey say that all birth control methods approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration should be covered by an employer's insurance without co-pay.

The same percentage felt that women without private insurance should have birth control costs covered by government funding. However, one third of respondents disagreed with that notion.

The research also revealed that more young Republicans support the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive coverage requirement than oppose it, regardless of how they feel about Obamacare in general.

The report's author, Kristen Soltis Anderson, co-founder of Echelon Insights, said that the more educated the respondents were the less likely they were to feel generous about making birth control affordable and available.

Anderson said that young Republican men were not as supportive of birth control subsidies as the women who were surveyed. In fact, only 38 percent of men thought that contraception should be part of preventative health care.

"Young men need encouragement," Anderson said. "They don't know what their role is in the conversation. To what extent do they have it with their partners? They're certainly not having it with their doctors."

The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to prevent teen pregnancy and unplanned pregnancy, especially among single, young adults.
