Banning abortions would have catastrophic consequences for the economy


THE US Secretary of the Treasury Janet Glenn stated today that the prohibition of abortions It could have a “very detrimental effect” on the US economy, as some women would not be able to complete their education, their income would be reduced during their working life while others would be left out of the workforce.

Speaking to Senate Banking Committee Glenn said research has shown that banning women from accessing abortions increases their chances of living in poverty or with state support.

“I believe that eliminating the right of women to decide for women, whether they will have children, would have very devastating consequences for the economy and would bring women back many decades.” said Glenn answering a question on the subject.

A draft ruling by the Supreme Court leaked last week that could undermine the constitutional right to abortion.
