I think it's great that so many pro-lifers are so young..It's a great indicator of hope for pro-lifers that even our young people respect life. I truly believe that one day we will end abortion.
When Nancy Keenan, the head of America’s oldest abortion lobby, told the Washington Post she was stepping down, she cited a grim fact that she had noticed for years: abortion supporters just aren’t as young or zealous as their pro-life counterparts anymore.
“While most young, antiabortion voters see abortion as a crucial political issue, NARAL’s own internal research does not find similar passion among abortion-rights supporters,” wrote the Post’s Sarah Kliff. “If the pro-choice movement is to successfully defend abortion rights, Keenan contends, it needs more young people in leadership roles, including hers.”
Keenan, 60, said she would step down at the end of the year in favor of a younger executive. “There’s an opportunity for a new and younger leader,” Keenan told the paper. “Roe v. Wade is 40 in January. It’s time for a new leader to come in and, basically, be the person for the next 40 years of protecting reproductive choice.” You mean killing babies...and you wonder why abortion is fading? People are realizing what it is.
The abortion leader had told Newsweek in 2010 of her shock at the youth and vigor of the pro-life movement after stumbling upon the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., which draws hundreds of thousands of people - disproportionately female and very young - each year.
“I just thought, my gosh, they are so young,” she said. “There are so many of them, and they are so young.”
