Birth Control Gains Acceptance Among Catholics

In recent months, outcry from religious leaders presented a road block for the portion of President Obama’s health care plan that required all institutions, including Catholic ones, to offer birth control as part of employee healthcare plans. However, 82 percent of Catholic voters in a Gallup poll released May 23 said birth control is morally acceptable, which nearly matches the 89 percent of all Americans and 90 percent of non-Catholics who said the same.
