Elect Hillary Clinton so more babies can be aborted. That’s the Planned Parenthood-Emily’s List-NARAL mantra for the 2016 presidential campaign. But, apparently young, millennial women voters aren’t buying it.
In an interview with the Daily Tarheel, Emily’s List director Stephanie Schriock complained that young women voters aren’t coming around for Hillary in ways abortion activists expected. Schriock admits, “[W]e need to get our voters to the polls. And we need folks of all ages, particularly younger voters to get engaged.”
In an interview with Brietbart one pro-life activists explained why the abortion lobby can’t connect with young women voters.
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America – the nation’s largest organization of pro-life millennials – says young people have grown up with the science and technology of ultrasound in which parents can see their unborn baby in the womb.
“They understand the moral gravity of taking that life,” she told Breitbart News.
“Millennial pro-choice women are also less passionate about being pro-choice than pro-life young women are about being pro-life, and that intensity gap plays out at the voting booth,” Hawkins added. “Pro-life millennials see abortion as the greatest injustice of our lifetime, while even pro-choice millennials recognize that abortion is a failure of our society and painful decision made when a young woman feels like she has no way out.”
Polling data bears out the fact that young Americans are pro-life.
Abortion on demand, throughout pregnancy, without any limits. That’s the radical view Hillary Clinton holds. But polling data shows just 17 percent of millennials have the same views on abortion as the Democratic presidential candidate.
The polling found just 17% of millennials agree with Hillary Clinton’s extreme stance on abortion. And some 53% of millennials agree that abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances.
The polling and subsequent white papers on the data is an initiative of Students for Life’s newly-launched Institute for Pro-Life Advancement which is committed to researching the best ways to communicate our philosophically and scientifically-sound opposition to abortion and win this generation for the pro-life movement, especially those who see abortion as morally wrong but do not think it should be illegal.
