Over the weekend, our facebook page crossed the 2000-fan threshold! We’re now up to 2,011 members. Here are our stats from Facebook (click to enlarge):
Just over 60% of our membership is female. This doesn’t surprise me at all. Although abortion advocates like to paint the anti-abortion movement as male-dominated, in my experience, women are the driving force. (I actually expected the percentage of women to be higher– for instance, this pro-life facebook page is 72% women. In our case, the percentage was probably tempered by the fact that women tend to be more religious than men.) Also unsurprisingly, most of our members are in their twenties and early thirties.
What did surprise me is Secular Pro-Life’s vast geographic span. SPL was founded in the United States, but about a quarter of our members live in other countries. Twenty different nations are represented.
I am so grateful for your support. Whatever our backgrounds, wherever we live, and whatever stage we’re at in life, we are united to defend the lives of preborn children!
