FOCUS GROUPS FIND STRONG SUPPORT FOR PATIENT-PHYSICIAN RELATIONSHIP
The preliminary results of our focus groups with pro-life voters on women’s health issues start with some very good news. Conservative Texans have a lot of trust in the patient-physician relationship and don’t want the government anywhere near the exam room. Even when the talks might veer into abortion or other political hot buttons, these voters don’t want the government thwarting these intensely personal discussions between patients and their physicians. Although our position on the state’s proposed gag order has drawn heavy flak from some anti-abortion groups, this research tells us that those organizations are not in synch with their so-called constituents.
