Last year, for the first time since Gallup had been asking the question, a majority of Americans polled said they were "pro-life" on the issue of abortion. A slight majority (51%), but a majority, nonetheless.
Now, a Marist survey finds that when breaking down the polling by generation, younger Americans are pro-life by a much wider margin. From Life News:
Millennials, those young Americans between the ages of 18-29, have 59 percent of their generation saying abortion is morally wrong. Members of Generation X (30-44 years of age) say abortion is morally wrong at a 60% clip.
But even older Americans by a large majority feel the same. "More than 6 in 10 of the Greatest Generation (those 65+)," the survey reports.
It is the Baby Boomer generation that brings the overall percentage down.
Baby Boomers (those aged 45-64) are the least pro-life, with 51 percent saying abortion is "morally wrong."
But even among the "least pro-life" generation, still a majority are pro-life. This is great news for preborn children if our politicians will only beging representing the majority view of Americans. Of course, they never really needed to wait for the majority opinion to do what's right.
