Most Americans oppose the use of tax dollars to fund abortions in the United States or overseas, according to a Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll released on Wednesday.
"Amidst the harsh political divides in our country, clear bipartisan majorities support abortion restrictions and do not want their tax dollars paying for abortion abroad," said Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, in a statement on Wednesday.
"Our polling has shown consistently over the past decade that policies that promote abortion-on-demand paid for by taxpayers are divisive and out of step with American public opinion," Anderson added.
According to the new poll, the vast majority of respondents (77%) said they either "oppose" or "strongly oppose" using tax dollars to pay for abortion procedures around the world. Only 19% of respondents supported public funding of abortions overseas.
