March for Life (2017) - Pro-life GenerationA young pro-life leader says abortion rights supporters have good reason to worry about millennials and their views about abortion and the sanctity of life.

Holly Thomas, a London-based writer, suggests in an Oct. 9 op-ed for CNN.com that "reproductive rights" are in jeopardy in the midterm elections and urges young voters to vote to protect them.  

"I think she might get a different result than she intended," responds Kristi Hamrick of Students for Life of America, which boasts pro-life chapters on more than 1,200 campuses in all 50 states.

"There's a lot of interest in the abortion issue," Hamrick tells OneNewsNow, "as the human rights issue of our day."

Thomas, however, suggests that most young voters identify as Democrats and therefore also support abortion.

"When you see a lot of these articles saying that young people are just sold out for abortion," says Hamrick, "I would tell them go visit the March for Life and see the thousands upon thousands of young people who disagree."

The one area where Thomas and Hamrick agree is this: Young people need to vote.
