Most Americans Support Birth Control Mandate In Obama Care

A majority of Americans support mandatory birth control coverage as part of Obamacare, according to a new study from researchers at the University of Michigan. In the study the researchers found that 69 percent of all the respondents were in favor of such coverage.

"In this study, women, blacks, and Hispanics were more likely to support coverage of birth control medications than were men, older individuals and adults without children in the home. In other words, support is higher among individuals who may be more likely to directly benefit from affordable birth control," the researchers wrote in their study report.

The issue is currently bound for the U.S. Supreme Court, who will decide in June whether for-profit companies will be required to cover birth control in their health care packages.
