A shift in the demand curve in favor of life

Barbara Lyons of Wisconsin Right to Life took a look at the poll numbers showing some consistency in the majority opposition to abortion. She found an even more encouraging trend behind the shift in opinion:

Fueling the pro-life position are women, women, women — especially younger women. The Pew poll showed the most significant change in women 18-29. This substantiates research data from many sources over the past five years showing that the millenials, ages 13-27, hold pro-life positions.

The best news — since most abortions are performed on women 18-34, this shift to a pro-life position for women 18-29 could signify even more decreases in the number of abortions.
