The Death of Abortion in the USA

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: This map (click to enlarge) reflects what would likely happen if 'Roe v. Wade' were overturned, allowing states to write their own laws on abortion. The light states reflects areas where abortion would be significantly restricted, whereas the dark states reflect areas where abortion would not be restricted at all. The middle color states reflect areas where restrictions would be mild.

Now consider this. If 'Roe v. Wade' were overturned in favor of states' rights, than what would happen to the population demographics in the various colored states?

The light colored states would get lighter, as their population grows due to fewer abortions in those states. That population would have a much higher pro-life percentage, thus securing their pro-life status. The middle and darker colored states would also get lighter, do to the fact that those who favor abortion would be far more likely to kill their unborn, thus reducing their numbers. Pro-Life groups in those states would slowly increase in number, mainly because they are the only groups reproducing. As that demographic increases, the darker colored states would slowly become lighter, as state laws begin to reflect the sentiments of the growing Pro-Life population in those states. The process of transition from dark state to light state would probably take about 30 to 40 years, but it would eventually happen. Simple reproductive demographics would mandate it.
