Report Shows Voters Support Current Military Law

Report Shows Voters Support Current Military Law
By: CWALAC Staff - 8/12/2010

A new survey commissioned by the Military Culture Coalition (MCC) shows that among self-identified likely voters, there is very little support for overturning the military’s current policy – the 1993 law banning homosexuals from serving in the military and the Clinton-era “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” compromise. There is also strong support for the current military culture and opposition to a career-penalizing zero-tolerance policy or attempts to modify training in to promote acceptance of open homosexuals within the ranks. The MCC survey also shows a strong opposition to allowing taxpayer-funded abortions at military medical facilities. The survey is the first to ask realistic questions about the effect of these two major social changes on a wartime military, currently pending in the U.S. Senate as a part of the Defense Authorization bill. The Senate is scheduled to take up this bill when it returns from recess in September.

In a press teleconference, members of the Military Culture Coalition discuss the impact of these findings and what it means for those facing elections this fall.
