9. Extra Note:

9.1. I remember watching an episode of "freak-enomics" where they were discussing why the crime rate in NY had drastically decreased over a specific span of time. They demonstrated how it was most logically because of the law legalizing abortion in that state some decade ago by comparing Romania's huge increase in crime a decade after Ceausescu's rule. It makes sense because you had so many unwanted and abandoned children who had now grown up and became criminals do to such a traumatic upbringing, whereas unwanted pregnancies in NY were aborted.
