Attitudes toward Birth Control Coverage

Overall, the 55 percent majority of Americans think private companies "should be required to cover birth control in their workers' health plans, even if it violates their owners' personal religious beliefs," according to a Kaiser Poll. Fully 61 percent of women say birth control should be covered versus a smaller 50 percent of men. By age, here is the percentage who say birth control coverage should be required...

Aged 18 to 29: 64%
Aged 30 to 49: 58%
Aged 50 to 64: 55%
Aged 65-plus: 41%
