You missed the point

The clip I posted does not make any value judgement on whether abortion should be legal or not. It simply shows that Roe v. Wade had an unforeseen benefit in the reduction of violent crime 18+ years later. The abortion debate is and always has been about women's rights vs the right of the unborn and nothing will change that.

As for the Minority Report reference, I agree that we should not assume anything about the future actions of individuals, but the aggregate statistics on violent crime and who commits them don't lie. Even though violent crime can happen anywhere, the majority of it occurs in densely populated, lower income areas and is generally committed by lower income people.

A government big enough to provide you with everything you need is powerful enough to take everything away (from you).
