The "Roe" Effect

Writing for, Larry Eastland attempts to quantify what James Taranto ("Best of the Web", also on Opinionjournal) refers to as the "Roe Effect." An interesting analysis on how abortion "rights" have hurt the Democrats:
Abortion has caused missing Democrats--and missing liberals. For advocates so fundamentally committed to changing the face of conservative America, liberals have been remarkably blind to the fact that every day the abortions they advocate dramatically decrease their power to do so. Imagine the number of followers that their abortion policies eliminate who, over the next several decades, would have emerged as the new liberal thinkers, voters, adherents, fund-raisers and workers for their cause.
The analysis is fairly detailed, and definitely worth the time to review.
