Pro Life Laws Having An Impact On Abortion Rates

04.21.11 |

Pro-Life laws are cutting into the abortion rates across the country. There is a scientific report demonstrating a corrolation between the rise in the number of state laws restricting abortion, and the number of abortions. Professor Michael Nu, of the University of Alabama, conducted the study. They looked at the number of new pro-life laws enacted between 1990 and 2005, and the 22 percent drop in the U.S. abortion rate in that period. The research appears in the State Politics and Policy Quarterly Journal.
