Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus?
Over the last decade - usually around the time of the annual March for Life - we frequently hear and/or see a message shouted or carried by many of our young people like:- 'I AM the Pro-Life Generation" or 'Choose Life'. The following text is the introduction to a KofC Columbia on-line magazine article entitled 'Voices of the Pro-Life Generation'. The article essentially focuses on the millennial generation. Over the next few weeks we will feature the pro-life stories on five of these young pro-lifers.
"A national leader of abortion advocacy arrived in downtown Washington, D.C., during the 2010 March for Life and could barely believe her eyes.
Nancy Keenan, then president of NARAL, later told a Newsweek reporter: 'I just thought, my gosh, they are so young. There are so many of them, and they are so young.'
As if confirming Keenan’s observation, a NARAL survey the same year revealed a sharp 'intensity gap' about abortion among millennials. While 51% of pro-life voters under the age of 30 considered abortion to be a 'very important' voting issue, only 26% of pro-abortion voters under 30 felt the same way.
Fast-forward a decade, and the cause continues to attract passionate young people. Roughly a quarter of participants in the annual March for Life are high school or college age, and pro-life demonstrations throughout North America are likewise filled with young faces.
Meanwhile, some of the millennials represented in NARAL’s 2010 survey are now at the forefront of the pro-life movement, advocating in various ways for the unborn, abortion- vulnerable women and those struggling with the pain of past abortion.
Columbia spoke with five of these leaders, young Catholic men and women spanning the millennial generation, about their pro-life mission."
