The Roe effect is a theory about the long-term effect of abortion on the political balance of the United States, which the practice of abortion will eventually lead to the restriction or illegalization of abortion.

Put simply, this theory holds that:

  • Those who favor legal abortion are much more likely to get one than those who oppose it.
  • Children usually follow their parents’ political leanings.
  • Therefore, pro-choice parents will have more abortions and, hence, fewer children.
  • Therefore, the pro-choice population gradually shrinks in proportion to the pro-life population.
  • Therefore, support for legal abortions will decline over time.
