(Charisma News) Mark Olson, a former liberal activist, has published research demonstrating the devastating economic impact abortion-on-demand has had on the American economy. Olson’s research finds that more than $16 trillion in federal revenue, roughly the size of our national debt, has been lost due to abortion.

“The figure of 55 million persons aborted, typically reported by pro-life groups, is a significant undercount,” says Olson, a pro-life political consultant. “Abortions did not magically begin occurring in 1973 [when the Supreme Court allowed them], yet that is when everyone starts counting.”
