Americans Overwhelmingly Oppose Forcing Taxpayers to Fund Abortion at Home or Overseas
Washington, D.C. – A new Marist/Knights of Columbus poll released today finds that 77% of Americans – including 55% of Democrats, 85% of Independents, and nearly two thirds of pro-choice respondents – oppose using taxpayer dollars to promote abortion overseas.
In addition, a strong majority of Americans (58%) – including 65% of Independents and nearly one third of Democrats – oppose using taxpayer money to fund abortions in the United States.
SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser welcomed the new poll results, saying:
“Americans across the political spectrum overwhelmingly reject the idea of forcing taxpayers to be complicit in the destruction of innocent human life at home or the exportation of abortion around the world. This includes millions of rank-and-file Democrats alienated by the radical platform of their party. These facts come as no surprise to the pro-life movement, but they ought to serve as a wake-up call to President Biden and Vice President Harris – who have promised to swiftly dismantle President Trump’s pro-life policy achievements and ramp up the flow of tax dollars to the big abortion industry. Susan B. Anthony List will work tirelessly to expose their extremism and ensure there are political consequences to their efforts to impose abortion on demand through birth on taxpayers’ dime.”
SBA List is a network of 900,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
