The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 38% of Likely U.S. Voters think health insurance companies should be required by law to cover the morning after pill without co-payments or other charges to the patient. Fifty percent (50%) disagree and oppose this requirement. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided.

Note that voters were not asked specifically whether religious institutions should be required to pay for these "morning-after pills" but whether insurers should generally pay for them. Opposition would likely be even higher if voters had been informed that Obamacare also mandates that a "week-after" pill that can cause abortions be offered "free of charge."
