You are the majority!
Yesterday, along with partners from Alliance for a Better Utah and the ACLU of Utah, we announced the results of state-wide polling on the issues of sex education, contraceptive access, and abortion.
The results confirm what we have always believed: Utahns overwhelmingly SUPPORT sex education and contraceptive access and OPPOSE further restrictions on abortion.
- 65% of Utahns support medically accurate sex education curriculum in Utah schools.
- 80% of Utahns believe it is important to provide state funding for reproductive health services like contraceptives.
- 80% of Utahns say the state does not need more abortion restrictions.
If you support reproductive rights and access to health care and education, you are part of the majority in Utah.
But our state legislators are not listening.
There are currently 3 extreme anti-abortion bills making their way through the legislature: Senator McCay’s abortion ban, Representative Christiansen’s mandatory ultrasound bill, and Senator Bramble’s fetal tissue bill. These politicians (all men with no medical training) are trying to rush through legislation on matters they know very little about and that will demonstrably harm their constituents. These bills are an attack on the agency and well-being of Utahns, and as this polling shows, are not what Utahns want.
We need to make sure our legislators know that the MAJORITY of Utahns support reproductive rights, sex education, and access to affordable family planning services and OPPOSE these extreme measures to limit our access to safe and legal abortion.
We must raise our voices against these politicians who ignore the will of the people.
