No, not the young you may be thinking. (After all, when we talk about young ones in these parts, we’re usually referring to the unborn.)
These statistics caught my eye again recently:
Looking specifically at teens … 72 percent call abortion morally wrong, and 32 percent believe it should be illegal in all circumstances. Among adults … 17 percent backed a total ban.”
While some dismiss this statistic, choosing to focus on the lack of life-experience a teenager possesses, I am reminded of my own pre-teen self, already well anchored into my opinion on many important issues.
There must be a few people who see it as I do on the pro-abortion side.
They [major abortion-rights groups] hope to win over young people by focusing on issues less controversial (and to many students, more pressing) than abortion, such as the rising price of birth control on college campuses.”
