The paper was presented at the DeVoe Moore Center Symposium on the Economics of Crime at Florida State University, March 27-29, 2009. Many individuals at numerous seminars and at several journals have commented on earlier work related to the abortion and crime debate. I am especially indebted to Alfred Blumstein, Greg Colman, Philip Cook, John Donohue, Christopher Foote, Michael Grossman, Christopher Jencks, Robert Kaestner, Steven Levitt, Kiki Pop-Eleches, Andrew Racine and Bruce Benson.
