NARAL Leader: Where Are the Millenials?
Crazy idea to you who promote the death of America’s young while still in the womb, but maybe, just maybe, all those kids you have addicted to “Glee” and used it to sway the Gay Marriage issue (Bristol Palin is on to something there) look at the practice of abortion and pause. Do a quick math problem, and realize that they were born after 1973.
Thus, they realize that possible classmates, possible siblings, and hell; even themselves would have been victims of abortion.
Best of luck overcoming that realization Abortion Industry as you look for another (apparently this time younger) leader for your death cult.
At the end of this year, Nancy Keenan will step down from her post as president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, the country’s oldest abortion-rights advocacy group.
The 60-year-old Keenan said she is leaving out of concern for the future of the pro-choice movement — and thinks she could be holding it back.
In recent years, Keenan has worried about an “intensity gap” on abortion rights among millennials, which the group considers to be the generation of Americans born between 1980 and 1991. While most young, antiabortion voters see abortion as a crucial political issue, NARAL’s own internal research does not find similar passion among abortion-rights supporters. If the pro-choice movement is to successfully defend abortion rights, Keenan contends, it needs more young people in leadership roles, including hers.
“There’s an opportunity for a new and younger leader,” Keenan said during a Wednesday interview in her downtown Washington office. “Roe v. Wade is 40 in January. It’s time for a new leader to come in and, basically, be the person for for the next 40 years of protecting reproductive choice.”
NARAL, which was founded in 1969, is in the middle of a multi-year effort to engage millennials on abortion rights. For three years, the group has used surveys and focus groups to try to better understand young voters. When the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade reaches its 40th anniversary next year, NARAL hopes to roll out a more extensive campaign.
In the rest of the interview, Keenan goes on to call herself part of a “postmenopausal militia” (her words, not mine) hanging onto the mindset of feminist women from the 1970s.
Well, at least she got that part right. Forgot the word “radical” though in my opinion.
P.S. I’d like to also at this moment take the time to thank my own mother; two days before Mother’s Day, for choosing Life.
