Millennials now make up the largest demographic in the United States, topping baby boomers and making up a large percentage of the voting populace.

Liz Wolfe of Young Voices came to "The Chris Salcedo Show" today to help him understand the Hulu phenomenon "The Handmaid’s Tale,” popular with young people. It is also inspiring young liberals in over the top ways.

She told Chris Salcedo that the show is based on Margaret Atwood's novel by the same name. It is a dystopian science fiction -- or even political science fiction -- story about the theocratic nation of Gilead that uses women as "birthing chattel ... because there's a big fertility crisis," she explained.

Women dressed as characters from the show at a protest of Ohio's Senate bill 145, which restricts some methods of abortion. The bill would ban dilation and evacuation, which accounts for only 14% of abortions in the state. Wolfe found it melodramatic that protesters would equate such legislature with the forced births of the television show.
