It’s coming, maybe faster than you think. News Buckit has a must-read post on the growth of pro-life identification. A sample:
Results in 1992 were largely in step with what study authors Christopher Blunt and Fred Steeper call the “self-interest hypothesis.” Women and men under 30 were the most ardently “pro-choice” (39 percent) and the least likely to be strongly “pro-life”( 23 percent).
Today, by contrast, among the current generation of 18- to 29-year-olds, 36 percent say they are strongly “pro-life,” while just 18 percent say they are strongly “pro-choice,” the study authors said.
Here’s the full paper their post is based on. The bottom line is that, as the movement has gotten away from some of the more controversial tactics it has gained acceptance. We’ve essentially fought a 30 year PR war and won, not because we had a better pitch but because people have figured out the other guys are liars. 4D ultrasound spells the end of abortion on demand.
