“Georgia’s voters overwhelmingly oppose efforts to restrict reproductive freedom”

New polling from NARAL Pro-Choice America is showing that Georgians overwhelmingly oppose efforts to restrict reproductive freedom. By a 24-point margin, 62% of Georgians oppose Gov. Brian Kemp and Georgia Republicans’ six-week abortion ban – and 55% of Georgians strongly oppose the ban. 

With comments recently surfacing from Kemp opening the door to banning contraception, the poll shows that Georgians also overwhelmingly oppose that idea. 94% of Georgians oppose efforts to prohibit access to birth control methods, and 81% of Georgians oppose efforts to restrict access to emergency contraception.
