"missing" is a very light way for the author to put it.

That's how the the Left fights. The only "wars" worth fighting are on social issues of the day, and the casualties are ALWAYS the most defenseless among us.

I'm not a "Reagan baby", but I did come of age in the Reagan Era, and it had a profound effect on my life and politics.

Well, I guess that makes me a 'Reagan Baby.' I'm not ashamed of that term in the least!

"Second, the pro-abortion constituency is aging rapidly. A comparison of membership lists between Planned Parenthood and the National Right to Life Federation reveals that the average pro-abortion activist is ten years older than the average pro-life activist. The face of the abortion industry in the twenty-first century is the rapidly aging 'liberated' radical."

Excellent! So, since these people believe in abortion on demand, they'll also be the FIRST to euthanize themselves when they all get very old and/or ill, right? That's a win-win. ;)

The flood of abortion since Roe has very odd cultural ramifications, while I am pro life, I can't help but take some stock in the notion that lower crime rates are due to increased abortion rates. Furthermore, it has increased the percentage of children being born into stable families which leads to the phenomenon discussed in this article.

The effects are very Malthusian, and that was the intent of the early abortion advocates.

Yes and this trend will continue. The left is killing its future one abortion at a time while conservatives are becoming better and better at passing on conservative viewpoints and family values. Modern liberalism is by definition an empty philosophy that only appeals to a very cynical narrow group of people. The only way that it can surive is through deception because it has so detached itself from its roots that its only way to gain vitality is through parasitism.

The mainstream liberalism of today is the impotent radicalism of the past which like a vampire can not see its own reflection. The fangs, the teeth, the gnashing and clawing persist as if by pure fear alone their goals can be won. It is this inability to see the monster in their ways that keeps them from enchanting anyone but children and the mentality and emotionally disturbed.

What a great article. This may explain why the Dems opposing Alito are citing concern over executive power and "privacy rights". As if abortion and privacy have anything to do with one another.

Something similar has happened in Europe--except that there the live-for-the-moment crowd is being replaced by Muslim immigrants.

Those crime rates would not be lower if the 45 million murders were included in the stats.

So a quarter of the younger generation was killed via abortion - and the survivors know it and take it seriously.

Just think of it this way: suppose that a woman was pregnant with identical twin girls, and she had one of them aborted. Would not the survivor be a daily reproach to her mother? Who would be able to bear it?

Likewise, forensic science is learning how to predict the appearance of a child who has been missing for years. Since we know that twins with identical DNA are hard to tell apart, it's obvious that the DNA essentially defines an individual's appearance. It follows that advances in computer modeling are likely in the future to reach the stage where it will be techically possible to present to a pregnant woman images not only a fetus' current state of development but images of the developing child's future appearance at any age - analogous to having photos of an identical twin whose sister was dispatched in utero.

Indeed, the technology would not likely be limited to flat 2-D images. How, exactly, does a woman opt to prevent the development of a child she has looked in the eye?

Technically, I'm a "Carter Baby" as I was born in Aug. 77. But I consider myself an adopted Reagan kid.

Me too, voted for him in 1980. Was a freshman in college.

Viva Ronald Reagan!

I'm a Kennedy kid, born durung the Cuban missile crisis. However, Reagan is one of my heroes, so I'm an honorary Reagan kid.

My kid's are Clinton kids (God forbid) but I think I have raised them with the values that fit in the Reagan and now Bush era. We sandwiched the Reagan era, my kids and I, but claim it anyway.

But since you were a twentysomething during Reagan's term, at least you came of age in his era!
