A poll released Monday by the nation’s largest organization of pro-life youth found that 70 percent of millennials support limits on abortion.

“Millennials have lived with the harsh realities of abortion all their lives and understand more than their parents’ generation that we must address the human rights issue of our day and make changes in defense of mothers and their preborn infants,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America (SFLA). “Millennials may reject labels in general, but when it comes to the specifics of abortion policy, they are anti-abortion.”
