A revealing article in Newsweek shows the abortion rights movement in
the United States painfully aware of its ageing leadership and lack of
traction amongst young adults. NARAL president Nancy Keenan and others
concede that they have failed to address the “moral complexity” of
abortion, something that even pro-choice young people now take on board.
Good news about young adults in the United States: research shows that their top priority is being a good parent. In the latest Pew report on the Millennials (18- to 29-year-olds) 52 per cent of them chose that over owning a home (20 per cent), having a high-paying career (15 per cent) and becoming famous (1 per cent) as the most important thing in their lives.
