CRIME & ABORTION

This is the third in a five-part series. Upcoming topics include how one other major factor affected crime, one which was ignored by Freakonomics author Levitt and which may in fact have been a result of legalized abortion...

IV. MISANALYZED

A. CRIME WAS "REDUCED" WELL PRIOR TO ROE


Even if abortion indirectly was responsible for decreases in crime, then I could demand this corollary of my letter writer neighbor: "Are this country's state and federal governments, for the 130 or so years prior to Roe v. Wade when abortion was illegal, willing to face their indirect responsibility for the high level of crimes as well as their attendant ancillary expenses such as more prisons and higher taxes that surely existed pre-Roe?"

But the U.S. really didn't have the same high crime, prison-crowding or tax rates in the years before abortion was legalized, as displayed in the Crime and Justice Atlas 2000 and its 2001 Update
