Michael J. New:

  • After Roe v. Wade, conceptions increased by 30 percent.
  • The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect has reported that child abuse has increased more than 1,000 percent since Roe v. Wade.
  • The cohort of 14-to-17-year-olds born after the Roe v.Wade decision was much more likely to commit homicides than the cohort of 14-to-17-year-olds born before Roe v. Wade.

Civilization declined, in other words.
