U.S. Anti-Choice Movement Provides Inspiration and Support to Activists in Europe

Many Europeans shake their heads in bemusement over anti-choice activists' fervent opposition to abortion by in this country.  But they may not be shaking their heads for much longer . . . .

Politico: U.S. anti-abortion groups inspire movement in Europe, by Sarah Wheaton:

U.S. abortion opponents are giving new life to the movement abroad, where once-stagnant European allies are pushing changes that could affect the whole continent.

A younger generation of anti-abortion activists has turned to the United States for legal advice, strategic training and transatlantic inspiration. They credit a distinctly American approach with forcing abortion, long a deeply private issue in Europe, into the public conversation. And for the Americans who travel overseas to assist, strengthening their cause internationally also strengthens their position at home. . . .
