In today’s Big Story podcast, while many may think of abortion as a non-issue in Canada, the movement against it still exists… but it looks a lot different than it once did. Young people (Gen Zers to be specific) are increasingly labelling themselves as pro-life, attending anti-abortion marches and supporting pro-life politicians.

What’s changed in the decades since abortion was a federal election issue? How are young people being recruited? Will this strengthen the anti-abortion movement or hurt it? And could the issue ever really come back up again in Canada as it has recently in the US?
