Abortion is a Critical Concern for Young Women

October 7, 2022

Abortion is a Critical Concern for Young Women: Of all the issues driving young female voters to the polls this November, only inflation comes close to rivaling abortion. Young women today are 25 points more likely than the general public to rank abortion as a critical issue, marking a major shift. In addition to expressing more concern about the issue than other Americans, young women are also far more supportive of legal abortion. A new report, “Gender Generation and Abortion: Shifting Politics and Perspectives After Roe,” finds that nearly half of young women say abortion should be available without any restrictions and that roughly three-quarters say it should be legal in most circumstances.
