More young people are pro-choice – proof that progress is winning (or will)

The divide on abortion in this country may not be quite so evenly split in coming years. A new survey from the Public Religion Research Institute shows that younger people have markedly more pro-choice views than their older counterparts. Only 44% of younger Americans report that abortion is against their personal beliefs (as opposed to 60% of those over 65 years old), and two-thirds of young people believe that abortion should be legal in most or all cases.

It’s good, but not surprising, news for the pro-choice movement – as with other social issues, the dinosaurs are dying out and progress is winning. Or, it will.
