CRIME & ABORTION

This is the fourth in a five-part series. Upcoming topics include how five renowned Ph.D. criminologists/economists can't all be wrong and how Freakonomics author Steven Levitt ignored another major factor boosting crime, one which may have been a result of legalized abortion...

IV. MISANALYZED

B. EXTRA! CRIME SPIKES AFTER ROE EFFECT SHOULD HAVE LOWERED IT!
(continued)

3) The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) shows that, after spiking in 1980 (to 596.6) parallel with the overall crime rate, the violent crime rate then jumped even more drastically, surpassing 1980's rate every year from 1986 through 1997, when it was 610.8. The rate hit an all-time high of 758.1 per 100,000 population in 1991.

In 1991, there were 2 million fewer potential criminals aged 18 through 21. In 1996 and 1997, there were 7.9 and 9.4 million fewer potential criminals aged 18 to 27, respectively. Had abortion truly affected crime rates as presumed, the overall and violent crime rates in 1991, '96 and '97 should have decreased accordingly but clearly didn't.
