There is only one social phenomeno n that can be correctly linked to Roe vs Wade.
In the 1990's, crime in the US dropped quite a bit. While Clinton tried to take credit for it, he really had nothing to do with it. A descision made
20 some odd years prior took care of the problem.
The majority of criminals are males between the ages of 18-25. This is the age group where crime peaks, and tends to drop off after. During the 90's,
those in that age group would have been born between 1971 to 1978, or something liek that. But first, during the 60's and 70's, a big rise in the
use of birth control. But Roe vs Wade also saw the two following years, 1974 and 1975 drop down to the lowest birth rates in US history, because more
women could have abortions.
The reason for the sudden crime drop in the 1990's was because there were fewer potential criminals. The potentials had been prevented or aborted.
Abd ironically, during the 1990's, liberalism was pretty high.
Abortion did help cull the criminal population a bit.
