Fact: Planned Parenthood One of the Most Popular Political Institutions in America
Latest NBC Poll Demonstrates Overwhelming Support for the Reproductive Health Care Provider
Sarasota, FL -- According to a recent poll by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal, Planned Parenthood is one of the most popular and trusted political voices in America.
The results from this poll stem from the deep and long standing relationship that many Americans have with Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading provider of reproductive health care and sex education.
Despite nearly a decade of politically motivated attacks that try to discredit Planned Parenthood through dangerous, unnecessary, and often unconstitutional restrictions, the facts remain clear: Americans trust the work of Planned Parenthood and support the nonprofit’s mission.
For more than a fifty years people have relied on Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida (PPSWCF) for care and information, and each year Planned Parenthood health centers in Florida serve thousands of patients essential services, such as birth control, STI testing and treatment, lifesaving cancer screenings, safe and legal abortion, and other high-quality health care. An estimated one in five American women has relied on Planned Parenthood for care in her lifetime.
“Our singular commitment is to the women and men who come to us for health care every day in communities across Florida,” said PPSWCF CEO Stephanie Kight. “The results of this poll speaks to the incredible support of Planned Parenthood patients and supporters for the mission. Despite the interference from politicians in Tallahassee and Washington, DC, Planned Parenthood remains resilient, alongside those who we serve.”
This survey was conducted March 10-14, with 1,100 adults surveyed. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. Among 930 registered voters the margin of error was plus or minus 3.2 percentage points. Read more about this recent poll here.
