Chelsea Clinton: Legalized Abortion Has Added Three and a Half Trillion Dollars to the Economy

She inherited her father's morals and her mother's charm.

Abortion has been an important economic stimulus ever since it was legalized by the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, Chelsea Clinton claimed at a "Rise Up for Roe" event on Saturday.

At the event promoting opposition to President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the former First Daughter of President Bill Clinton credited legalized abortion for helping add trillions of dollars to the U.S economy because women who had abortions were more inclined to enter the labor force:

"Whether you fundamentally care about reproductive rights and access right, because these are not the same thing, if you care about social justice or economic justice, agency -- you have to care about this.

"It is not a disconnected fact -- to address this t-shirt of 1973 --that American women entering the labor force from 1973 to 2009 added three and a half trillion dollars to our economy. Right?

"The net, new entrance of women -- that is not disconnected from the fact that Roe became the law of the land in January of 1973."

Thus, no matter what other things Americans may care about, everyone should appreciate the economic value of legalized abortion, Clinton said...

If we're going to look at this in strictly economic terms: What about the would-be economic contributions of those millions and millions of would-be children who would otherwise grow up to be adults and contribute lifetimes' of productive work to the economy?
