Poll: Most say employers should be allowed not to cover contraception
By Lucy Madison
(CBS News) A new CBS News/New York Times poll shows that most Americans believe there should be an exception for employers who may have a moral or religious objection to covering birth control for their employees.
According to the poll, which surveyed more than 1,000 adults nationwide from March 7-11, 51 percent of Americans believe employers of any kind should be allowed to opt out of covering birth control for religious or moral reasons. Forty percent say all employers should have to cover contraceptive care.
As part of the new health care law, the Obama administration is mandating that all employers cover contraception as part of their health insurance coverage, though religious institutions are exempted. Religiously-affiliated institutions such as schools and hospitals are also exempt, though under a compromise worked out by the administration following an uproar from religious leaders, employees of religiously-affiliated institutions will have access to contraception paid for directly by health insurance companies.

When asked specifically about religiously-affiliated employers, 57 percent of Americans said they should be able to opt out of the mandate if they have religious or moral objections. Thirty-six percent said such organizations should have to cover birth control.

Folks are concerned with how they will feed their kids, Folks are concerned with Over 8% unemployment for the longest sustained time in the history of this country since the great depression, folks are concerned with 19% underemployment, folks are concerned with 4+ trillion dollars in new debt in less than 3 years, folks are concerned with home foreclosures continuing unabated by any Obama plan, folks are concerned with gasoline heading toward $5 a gallon driving up prices of all consumer goods and food prices hitting the stratosphere and folks are concerned with GDP growth below 2% which means we're losing ground. What they aren't concerned with is whether employers should be allowed not to cover contraception. We just want to pay our bills and feed our kids. Yet the Democrats are yeowing about contraception? How outta touch is that?
