How much does abortion impact the economy?
By arguing a change in deportation policy of illegal immigrants could cost the U.S. economy $460 billion, the Center for American Progress (CAP) makes the case that every individual worker adds economic value. Their number presumes that 91% of current illegal immigrants are contributing to the economy and that expelling them would reduce U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
CAP presumes people create economic value. Using their formula, the economic impact of abortion since 1973 can be easily analyzed. America has aborted over 60 million future workers. This translates into $14.7 trillion in GDP loss and an additional estimated loss of $8.3 trillion over the next ten years. For context, the entire U.S. GDP for 2016 was $18.5 trillion.
It appears that abortion is bad economics.
