Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) – A prominent pro-abortion group is concerned about the future of legal abortions and, surprisingly, released the results of an internal poll it conducted to Newsweek demonstrating the problems. The bad news for NARAL is that its own survey found young Americans more passionate about pro-life views than abortion.
The NARAL survey, conducted earlier this year, examined the views of young Americans and found a stark “intensity gap” on abortion.
Some 51 percent of the under 30 voters who are pro-life call opposing abortion a “very important” voting issue compared with just 26 percent of abortion backers.
The poll found a pro-life gap, too, with older voters but it was smaller
For NARAL president Nancy Keenan, that is a huge problem.
Keenan talked about the emerging pro-life generation with Newsweek and said her concern is that abortion advocates are dominated by women over the age of 50 and that younger generations aren’t filling the ranks of pro-abortion groups the same way young pro-life advocates are getting involved in the pro-life community.

- Kurt A. Kondrich is a 20 year veteran of the Pittsburgh police force. Six years ago his daughter Chloe was born with Down Syndrome. This motivated Kondrich to return to college to earn a masters degree in Early Intervention. After graduation he retired from his law enforcement career to become Director of Community/Family Outreach for Early Intervention in the Pittsburgh area. Kondrich read a news report last week about the Sarasota, Florida abortionist who lamented killing the “wrong” unborn child during a selective reduction procedure to eliminate a Down syndrome fetus. The father of Chloe and advocate for Down syndrome children could not sleep that night and got up at 3 a.m. to write the following response to the news article: Targeted for Termination.
This past week I read an article that disturbed me deeply concerning a Florida doctor who had his license revoked . The article stated that the doctor “lost his license for mistakenly aborting a healthy twin during a procedure targeting a deformed fetus.” The doctor was “targeting a fetus with Down syndrome”, and he admitted he “screwed up”.
Chloe- Kurt's Daughter
Based on the facts presented in this article one can conclude that if the doctor had properly targeted the unborn child with Down syndrome and successfully terminated this twin then he would have kept his medical license. My beautiful 6 year old daughter Chloe has Down syndrome and has brought immeasurable good and Blessings into this world, and I have observed no “deformities” about her.
Parents of children with disabilities have fought very hard over the past decades to have our children fully included and accepted in schools and communities. We have made great progress with “inclusion” since the days of institutionalization, but with prenatal testing we have now entered a slippery slope that is rapidly turning into solid ice. If our society devalues the life of a person with a prenatal diagnosed disability and targets them for termination then this represents the ultimate “exclusion” and eventual “extinction”.
Currently 90%+ of children diagnosed prenatally with Down syndrome are “excluded” from ever shining their bright light in a lost world that has become obsessed with perfection and unrealistic traits. If the proper practice of medicine in our culture includes the skill of identifying and eliminating a prenatal twin who fails to meet the criteria of “normal”, then we truly do need a massive overhaul of the “health care” system, and it is the soul of our nation that is “deformed”.
