Who Would Have Guessed?


It turns out that enacting restrictions on abortion reduces the abortion rate. States that enact these restrictions tend to see sharper declines than states that do not. Which suggests that people who want to reduce the abortion rate should consider voting for candidates who want to enact such restrictions, and not for candidates who, say, want to expand taxpayer subsidies for abortion. I know that these are shocking conclusions: They run counter to a lot of what we have been hearing this year. But just because these points are obvious does not mean that they’re not also true.
