Where were the Young Pro-Life Activists? At the March for Life!

Good Morning! This is a refreshing article from a pro-abortion writer from the Washington Post. I find it refreshing because it's one of the first articles I've seen in the mainstream media that doesn't downplay the attendance of the young members of the pro-life side.

"I went to the March for Life rally Friday on the Mall expecting to write about its irrelevance. Isn't it quaint, I thought, that these abortion protesters show up each year on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, even though the decision still stands after 37 years. What's more, with a Democrat in the White House likely to appoint justices who support abortion rights, surely the Supreme Court isn't going to overturn Roe in the foreseeable future.

How wrong I was. The antiabortion movement feels it's gaining strength, even if it's not yet ready to predict ultimate triumph, and Roe supporters (including me) are justifiably nervous."

"...In this case, I was especially struck by the large number of young people among the tens of thousands at the march. It suggests that the battle over abortion will endure for a long time to come...."

"...Activists who support abortion rights conceded that there's less energy among young people on their side of the debate..."

Have a wonderful morning!

  1. I think there is not simply less energy among young pro-death activists, there are simply less of them altogether. The stereotype of pro-death activists are usually graying baby-boomers (same can be said for womyn priests too...). Gives us young ones hope :).


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
