For much of the nineteenth century the majority of America adopted the conservative Christian doctrine that people should not meddle with their ability to have children. However, this changed remarkably throughout the twentieth century.
Levitt and Dubner spend a lot of time convincing the reader how in reality policemen, stricter gun laws, and drug market changes are not the main reason for the decrease in crime rates. Instead, they begin to explain that the primary reason for the decrease in crime rates in the 1990 's is the legalization of abortion. The legalization of abortion occurred right after the case of Roe v. Wade (Levitt, Dubner 127). The authors go on to support their argument that abortion and crime are merely correlated but do not share a casual relationship. I found it very interesting when Levitt and Dubner write " In New York, California, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii, a woman had been able to obtain a legal abortion for at least two years before Roe v.

Modern medicine utilizes medications and surgical procedures to induce abortion. The debate over whether or not abortion should be a legal option continues to divide Americans long after the US Supreme Court 's 7-2 decision on Roe v. Wade declared the procedure a "fundamental right" on Jan. 22, 1973. America’s founding principles made no reference to rights of the unborn, as the bishops assert. It is dishonest to attempt to make the phrase in the Declaration of Independence about the “laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” mean what the pope means by natural law.

RECOMMENDATION FOR GOVERNMENT: Abortion is a very sensitive topic in every country but is especially sensitive in Nigeria because the law and government doesn’t pay proper and enough attention to this topic. Abortion is only discussed in only few sections in the Nigerian criminal code and penal code.
