The Affordable Care Act requires many employers, through their health plans, to cover contraceptives including abortion-inducing drugs.
As a result of the "Hobby Lobby" case against Obamacare's contraceptive mandate, some religious employers are fully exempt and don't have to participate if it violates their religious beliefs. But, other ministries with similar beliefs, including the Little Sisters of the Poor, are not exempt unless they sign a form.
A new poll released by Marist College's Institute for Public Opinion suggests a majority of Americans believe the process required by the Obama administration is unfair to ministries like the Little Sisters. In fact, it's not even close.
The poll found a full majority—53 percent—of Americans felt the process was unfair, compared to just 32 percent who said it was fair. Among men and women, those numbers didn't vary much at all.
Among Republicans and Independents, the gap was even wider. Of Republicans who responded, 63 percent said it was unfair, while just 21 percent said it was fair. Among independents, the margin was 56-31 saying the process was unfair.
Among Democrats, however, voters seem to be split with a 44-43 edge to those who say it is unfair.
