Short survey of young adults’ attitudes on abortion

Today Michael New published a short article on the NRO website, The College Republicans’ Report Has Good Advice On Abortion.  He provides a short survey of several opinion polls and concludes:

“The opinions of young adults on the issue of abortion tend to be nuanced. Many polls show that young people are somewhat less likely than older Americans to describe themselves as ‘pro-life.’ However, there is a growing body of data showing that young adults are actually more likely than older voters to support limiting abortion in specific circumstances.”
