Catholics' and Protestants' stance on exemption from new health care plan in 2012 This statistic shows the results of a 2012 survey among Americans and specifically American Catholics and Protestants among them on whether employers who oppose contraception should have to cover it in their health care plans, or not. The proposed federal rule in question would require employers, including most religiously affiliated institutions, to cover birth control as part of their health care benefits.
Of the surveyed Catholics who are aware of this new rule, 55 percent think that religiously-affiliated employers opposing contraception should be exempt from having to cover it as part of their health care plans, while 51 percent of the surveyed Protestants and 48 percent of the total American respondents state the same.
