Youth Provide Hope

I thought this was a great post by Gary Bauer:

With all the turmoil in the world – declining financial markets, terrorism, etc., – it is easy to get depressed some days. But if you want a little encouragement, just consider this headline from today’s Washington Post: “A Youthful Throng Marches Against Abortion.”

As we have noted before, the youth of America are increasingly pro-life, and today even the Washington Post was forced to concede that this year’s annual March for Life was comprised of thousands upon thousands of young people. They don’t read the New York Times or Supreme Court briefs or automatically accept as fact every rant they are forced to endure from
left wing professors.

Instead, they instinctively understand the inherent moral issue involved with abortion. Many carried signs reading, “Give Life, Don’t Take It,” and “Your Mother Was Pro-Life.” One 17-year-old student told a Post reporter, “It’s illegal to kill someone walking down the street, so it should be illegal to kill someone in the womb.”

These kids get it! Soon they will be adults voting for candidates and seeking public office themselves.
