If abortion reduces crime...

Independent Conservative - ABCNews' 20/20 Gives Freakonomics Pro-Baby Killing Analysis Much Time. Opposing Economist Gets 8 Seconds.
Here's a thought:

30 years ago Blacks had a much lower high school drop out rate, a higher rate of 2 parent households and a lower percentage being locked up. Today, Blacks get a disproportionally high number of abortions, while there is a stunningly higher drop out rate, over 70% of Black babies are born out of wedlock and in the last 30 years we've seen Blacks (men in particular) ending up in prison at an alarming rate. Estimates for the future of many young Black men is bleak. If abortions reduce crime, then why is a group that gets a dispassionately high rate of abortions seeing the opposite result?

Yeah! And observant Jews have the lowest abortion rate, so why hasn't there been an explosion of criminal behavior among them?

At any rate, go read the whole thing. It's really well done and says a lot that needs to be said.
