    Next Generation of Pro-Life Leaders

    I thought you'd all appreciate this great article in Slate on the up-and-coming faces of the pro-life movement and how they are quite a bit different and more diverse than previous generations.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    Here's one of the pertinent quotes from the OP...

    Despite recent setbacks, however, the demographic outlook for the pro-life movement looks anything but bleak. On issues from race to sexuality to drug law, Americans are used to seeing each new generation become more progressive than their parents; with abortion, it’s not happening: In a 2015 Public Religion Research Institute survey, 52 percent of millennials said the label “pro-life” describes them somewhat or very well, a number that roughly mirrors the general population. A 2013 poll showed that 52 percent of people aged 18 to 29 favored bans on abortion after 20 weeks, compared with 48 percent overall. Pro-choice activists now worry about the “intensity gap” among young people: A poll commissioned by NARAL Pro-Choice America in 2010 found that 51 percent of anti-abortion voters younger than 30 considered the issue “very important,” but for pro-choice voters the same age, only 26 percent said the same.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    I think it's important to point out that the movement doesn't necessarily include repeal of Roe v Wade. The pro-choice/pro-life dichotomy isn't really the conflict anymore.

    What do you see as the real conflict today?
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    Internalizing possible consequences and taking appropriate steps vs the attitude that there's a safety net when things go 'awry'.

    Didn't it used to be that family took responsibility for family, feeding, clothing, whooping when needed?

    Amazingly I've seen a secular/atheistic and agnostic group that's pro-life because of health reasons, many are physicians and nurses, and some are lay people. Part of it has a lot to do with the complications they've treated post abortion. For other reasons mentioned they are pro-life, due to human anatomy and development. Its quite interesting.
