Economic Crisis

Here is different thought on the source of our economic crisis. This is from the blog at catholicculture.org

The US economy is in crisis because the real-estate market is crashing. But why is the real-estate market crashing? One major factor-- among many, to be sure-- is abortion.

How's that, you ask? It's a simple matter of supply and demand.

In the first decade following Roe v. Wade, there were about 13 million American babies aborted. Had they lived, those babies would now be young adults, and many of them would be looking to buy their first homes. Add 13 million consumers to the market, and that increased demand would drive up prices. Raise prices, and the real-estate market would rally. If the real-estate market rallies, the financial crisis is behind us. But that's not happening, because those 13 million consumers are dead.

And that doesn't even account for the countless millions of children who might have been born in the 1960s, if their parents hadn't been contracepting...
