Abortion rights is one of the social issues that most divides millennial opinion with over 40% of the demographic arguing for and over 40% arguing against its legality. Though recent polls show Americans shy away from the labels “pro-life” and “pro-choice”, the issue is undoubtedly on their radar, and it was about time the candidates address such a contentious issue directly when the subject was brought up in the third and final Presidential Debate on October 19th. Unsurprisingly Donald Trump and Secretary Clinton’s views were distinctly polarized.
