Abortion, Politics, and Economics

DarwinCatholic has a fascinating post in which he argues that three assumptions commonly accepted in some circles "are partly or wholly false", to wit:

1) Economic well-being (as measured by a low poverty rate and a high median income) has been greater under Democratic administrations than Republican ones in the last 30 years.

2) Abortion rates have either been lower or have decreased faster under Clinton than under Reagan, HW Bush or W Bush.

3) There is a strong correlation between economic well-being and the abortion rate.

Check thou it out.
