Back at the time of the March for Life in Washington, DC, I noted a particularly confused Newsweek piece that seemed to argue that the pro-life movement was suffering from a lack of interest from young women. At the time, I wondered how that could possibly slip by anyone with a basic knowledge of the culture wars. Today, finally, they corrected the gross error — by publishing another article, this one reporting exactly the opposite situation. Emphases mine:
[W]hat worries [NARAL president Nancy] Keenan is that she just doesn’t see a passion among the post-Roe generation-at least, not among those on her side. This past January, when Keenan’s train pulled into Washington’s Union Station, a few blocks from the Capitol, she was greeted by a swarm of anti-abortion-rights activists. It was the 37th annual March for Life, organized every year on Jan. 22, the anniversary of Roe. “I just thought, my gosh, they are so young,” Keenan recalled. “There are so many of them, and they are so young.”
New NARAL research, conducted earlier this year and released exclusively to NEWSWEEK, only amplified Keenan’s fears. A survey of 700 young Americans showed there was a stark “intensity gap” on abortion.
Of course, this is only news to Newsweek. Everyone else has long been aware that the pro-life movement is more or less run by young women.
