Slowly changing?

From the Times Magazine, as linked by After Abortion:

Although 18- to 25-year-olds are the "least Republican generation" and "less religious than their elders," they are "slightly to the right of the general public" on abortion-related issues, The New York Times Magazine reports. According to the Times Magazine, 50% of people in the age group support some restrictions on access to abortion and 15% support banning abortion. About one-third support making the procedure "generally available," compared with 35% of 50- to 64-year-olds. [People ages 18 to 25] "give every indication of being attentive to the moral issues at stake: they aren't willing to ignore what is troubling about abortion and what is equally troubling about intolerant exclusion," the Times Magazine reports.

15%? Now that's an impressive statistic, about 1 in 7. Think about that the next time you walk down the street. Sure surprised me.
