Abortion Restrictions Are Firing up Gen Z’s Women to Vote Like Never Before

Gen Z is at a pivotal point between those too young to vote and those already voting and paying taxes.

On the verge of being a powerful force in the political arena, Gen Z is throwing their votes into the ring in record numbers this year after one particular move by the SCOTUS: the overturn of Roe V Wade.

By overturning Roe v Wade, the SCOTUS opened the door to dozens of restrictive laws around the country that prevent a woman’s right to access abortion. In some states, abortion can only be performed before 6 weeks – before most women even know they’re pregnant.

In response, Gen Z has gotten mad – as they say, big mad.

Furious over the first time a right has been rolled back, Gen Z (especially women) are more involved than ever, signing up in record numbers to canvas for progressive politicians and pledging to have their voices heard at the voting booths this November.

Because they’re younger (Born between the mid-90s and 2015), it’s a voting bloc often ignored by politicians looking to secure voter bases they’re already comfortable with. But that could be a grievous mistake.

They already showed their political power in the years since the murder of George Floyd, organizing protests and stumping for political candidates who align with their generational values.

And now, many Gen Z voters feel that the government came for their privacy and right to healthcare, or that of the people they love – and they’re pissed off about it.
