Voters Oppose Requiring All Pregnancy Centers to Cite Abortion Providers

Lawmakers in Hawaii are considering a bill that would require all pregnancy centers to refer patients to facilities that provide abortions, a move pro-lifers say violates their religious beliefs and free speech rights. While most voters are pro-choice, few favor a law like the one in Hawaii.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 29% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a law that requires all pregnancy centers to refer patients to abortion providers. Fifty percent (50%) oppose such a law, and 20% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
