Economic Impact of 1,500,000 Lost Lives on the U.S. Economy & Jobs Each Year

The calculated annual impact on national income of 1,500,000 economically active additional lives would be (1-4 explained in Footnotes): Men: $24,409 (1) X .474 (2) X 1,500,000 (3) X 2.5 (4) = $43,386,997,500 Women: $10,899 (1) X .526 (2) X 1,500,000 (3) X 2.5 (4) = $21,498,277,500 TOTAL additional annual national income:    $64,885,275,000   Since 1973, approximately 50 million potential American children have been aborted. If they had all lived, their economic impact in the year 2008 (in 1984 dollars) would have been roughly: Men: 50,000,000 X $24,409 X .474 X 2.5 =     $1,446,233,250,000 Women: 50,000,000 X 10,899 X .526 X 2.5 =     $716,609,250,000 TOTAL:                                                                $2,162,842,500,000 Assuming that approximately 20% of income is absorbed by Federal taxes of one sort or another, these never-to-exist taxpayers would have generated nearly $116 billion in tax revenues in that year (2010) alone. Of this $2.16 trillion in additional national income, hundreds of billions would have gone toward the Federal Treasury that year. These figures, then, represent the "Malthusian deficit" or, if you prefer "the abortion deficit" which we are bequething to our shrinking number of children and grandchildren… The justification of abortion for economic reasons, which is still sometimes heard is fraudulent. The Malthusian reasoning behind "the population crisis" of the 1960s proved to be wholly wrong, as it has in other times and places for nearly two hundred years. Whatever arguments may exist in favor of "abortion on demand", the economic fate of the nation is not among them.
