Leading Abortion-Industry Advocate Concerned about Millennials

Nancy Keenan, retiring from the helm of NARAL Pro-Choice America, is worried about the intensity of young voters on her issue:

“Whoever is able to connect the personal to the political with this generation, I think it’s kind of at a tipping point at 40 years — it could go the way, much like we’ve seen marriage equality being embraced by this generation,” she said. “We could see that they are there and will eventually act on those pro-choice values, but we have to close the intensity gap.”
