Abstract
  • This thesis examines ideological and rhetorical trends among millennial populations in the comment sections of three of the most popular social media sharing sites and compares them to the contemporary ideologies of PPFA and NARAL Pro-Choice America. The key questions of this study are: “Do individual commenters have the same ideologies as national organizations? In a highly polarized debate whose terms have been largely defined by national advocacy groups, do individual citizens express original thoughts and complexities that go beyond familiar labels? “
