Do they think outlawing birth control would be popular?

I realize that a lot of conservatives are slobbering over the prospect that the fall of Roe/Casey will mean that the privacy rights under Griswald v. Connecticut can also be overruled, but is there much a constituency for actually outlawing birth control?

We all live in our own bubbles, but while I know plenty of people who are anti-abortion, I don't know anyone, I mean literally anyone, who is anti-birth control. Even among the 30% or so who want abortion outlawed in every circumstance, do a clear majority of them (and just that group of anti-abortion absolutists) want to outlaw birth control?

I would guess the answer is no. But maybe that's just my bubble talking.
