    At the end of this year, Nancy Keenan will step down from her post as president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, the country’s oldest abortion-rights advocacy group. The 60-year-old Keenan said she is leaving out of concern for the future of the pro-choice movement — and thinks she could be holding it back.

Voisin - WASHINGTON POST) In recent years, Keenan has worried about an “intensity gap” on abortion rights among millennials, which the group considers to be the generation of Americans born...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 23 - Democratic leaders say their party needs to de-emphasize the issue of abortion rights, concerned that Republicans have hurt the Democratic Party by portraying it as an uncompromising champion of abortion. In interviews and public appearances since Election Day, Democratic officials have said that the party should open its doors to abortion opponents and that candidates should make abortion a less central focus of future campaigns. Party leaders said they were not abandoning their fundamental support for abortion rights, but said Democrats should consider accepting some restrictions that enjoy popular support - like parental notification when teenagers...

    New NARAL President May Have Falsified Battle With Catholic Church by Steven Ertelt December 3, 2004 Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- New NARAL president Nancy Keenan is finding herself in hot water for possibly exaggerating claims that she "stood up" to pressure from the Catholic Church in Montana after she spoke publicly at a pro-abortion rally fifteen years ago. Last month, NARAL selected former Montana elected official Nancy Keenan as its new president to replace outgoing leader Kate Michelman. In comments to the Washington Post after her selection, Keenan said she found herself rebuked by a Catholic bishop after speaking at...
