Teens and Young Twenty Somethings

One thing that really struck me at the March was the number of young people. My guestimate is that a good half of the marchers were high school or college age.

One thing I hear, over and over again, from those outside the prolife community is how the prolife movement is driven by old white males. That has never been my personal experience and Monday's March For Life demonstrated to me that my experience is more than correct. In fact, I saw very few old white guys.

This has become a young person's movement. They're motivated by the fact that 1/3 of their own generation has been wiped out by genocide in the womb. It's not my generation being killed, it's theirs.
