The November election took a toll on U.S. Congressional support for international family planning but PAI’s research shows that the new members are deeply out of touch with American voters. PAI conducted an election-night poll which found the majority of the country, across all political stripes, remains supportive of our issue.

Despite some politicians attempts to politicize family planning, fifty seven percent support the President’s decision to overturn the Global Gag Rule, including sixty-one percent of independents. In multiple other polls from the past decade and a half support for family planning consistently receives seventy-ninety percent.
