Poverty, Abortion, and Politics

Abortion rate = 2.06 + 1.71 * Poverty rate (R2= 0.37)

….abortion rates went down sharply during the Clinton administration, in spite of his pro-abortion stance. The change reversed in the current administration, in spite of Bush’s anti-abortion stance….

The single most effective anti-abortion activity in the last 23 years was the reduction of poverty
