Millennials: Hope for the Unborn?

Every year since 1973, pro-life demonstrators have boarded buses and sung themselves silly on the road to the U.S. Capital to join the March for Life. And for the first time in decades, there are signs of hope that Roe v. Wade won’t survive the millennial generation.

The March grew from a couple dozen protestors to hundreds of thousands pouring in from all 50 states and even other countries. Yet it didn’t seem to make a difference with lawmakers. However, advances in medicine and emerging technologies, like the Internet, that help educate youth is having a positive impact on young people. According to a recent USA Today article, millennials themselves are deciding that abortion should not be legal and identify themselves as pro-life.

This year marked the 28th annual conference for Students For Life of America. Attendance was high and demand so huge that the the SFLA had to schedule an extra day of the conference. Speaker Robert P. George, a law professor at Princeton University, applauded the dedication of pro-life leaders and honored the youth that are now seeing “the reality of the beautiful human life of the child in the womb.”

This leads me to share a story we ran across on the SFLA website. Let me just say that Ben (fictitious name) wandered by a “When Do Human Rights Begin?” display at a university in Iowa and asked the question all pro-lifers dread. What happened next is amazing—read the amazing witness ».
