ANdy, this is just factually incorrect.
A) I think you missed the point of the article: if young people thought the Republican message was so positive, why did ROmney get crushed in that demographic?
B) Efforts to pass " life at conception" legislation were in evidence. One sponsored by Paul Ryan. Mitt ROmney agreed with the concept. That is not a straw man: that is real legislation.
You are in utter denial.
