Millennials and Abortion

Here is a quote from an article commenting on another article that is trying to understand how the millennial generation could mover towards supporting gay marriage and yet resist approving abortion. Megan Mcardle makes this point:

She’s really trying to explain why those Cro Magnons in the millennial generation aren’t increasing their support for abortion.  It apparently doesn’t even occur to her to think that while the harm from gay marriage is pretty nebulous, the harm from abortion is pretty obvious to everyone.  (Whether or not you think it’s important enough to ban is of course an entirely separate question . . . but I think it’s fair to say that everyone recognizes that something unpleasant happens to some sort of organism that absent the abortion, will almost certainly turn into a human being.)

Abortion is something Peter Wimsey would associate with “The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club”.
