Abortion: Decrease of the U.S. Population & Effects on Society
Henry Potrykus, Anna Higgins
Forty years of legal abortion has had a massive effect on the U.S. population, both socially and economically. Employing national data and the methodologically strongest econometric work available, this study determines just how much abortion has affected the population and, thereby, the U.S. workforce. Via the effect on population, one establishes the negative economic impact abortion has now on the country because of its legalization. Abortion effects the society on a massive scale, impacting the populace in ways reachng beyond the destruction of life. It is in the interest of public policy, including health policy and policy concerned with economic strength, to discourage abortion.
