NARAL a radical Pro-abortion organisation in the US have just released survey results showing an “intensity gap” among young voters. More than half of pro-lifers under age 30 considered abortion a “very important” voting issue, compared to just one-quarter of abortion-minded youth. This comes at the heels of a Gallup poll announcing that 18- to 29-year-olds are now the most likely, of all age groups, to favour making abortion illegal in all circumstances.
The wave of pro-life passion puzzles NARAL President Nancy Keenan. In this week’s Newsweek magazine, Keenan recalled her visit to the March for Life rally in Washington, DC. The annual event drew tens of thousands of energized pro-lifers. “I just thought, my gosh, they are so young,” she told the reporter. “There are so many of them, and they are so young.”
A similar thing is happening here in New Zealand. At the recent Pro-life march held in Christchurch in April, what was apparent was the large number of young people amongst the over 300 people who marched.
