“The young people seem to be taking over all the older groups and it’s hugely re-energizing,” said 23-year-old Jonathon Van Maren, communications director with the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform. “And I think that the older generation is recognizing that new tactics, new ideas, new blood in the movement is really what’s going to change it.”
He says youth have come in “droves” to the movement in the last few years.
“I spoke to a rally of older people and I remember the pro-life leader there said ‘Thank God you guys are taking over, now we can finally die.’ They were very worried there because there weren’t people in the pro-life movement and just in the last couple of years it’s just skyrocketed.”
That assertion tends to be anecdotal. Golob says membership in the CLC Youth group has grown to the thousands, but she doesn’t know precisely how many of those have joined in the last few years.
