Hillary’s wrong again—Harvard poll shows strong Majority of Americans oppose using Medicaid funds for abortion

Pro-abortion Hillary Clinton

The list goes on and on and on. The public doesn’t agree with abortion maven Hillary Clinton on her support for partial-birth abortions and late term abortions, and her opposition to a ban on partial-birth abortion and parental involvement—to name just four items.

An a poll conducted for POLITICO Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health released today shows that she is on the wrong side of still another abortion-related issue. Americans overwhelmingly do not want their tax dollars syphoned off to pay for abortions. The margin among likely voters was a whopping 22 points—58% to only 36%.

Why is this significant? Because the question is really asking about the Hyde Amendment, a provision that is attached to the annual appropriations bill that covers many federal health programs (including Medicaid), which has stood the test of time and which Clinton and the Democrat Party is dead-set on eliminating. To quote the Democrat Party platform, “We will continue to oppose—and seek to overturn—federal and state laws and policies that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by repealing the Hyde Amendment.”
