Actually, there is no way to prove or disprove the contention that abortion lowers crime. There re many factors involved in crime, the most important being economic. You cannot know if any baby brought to term or fetus that was aborted would act later on.
It would be logical to suppose that fewer babies born into poverty would men fewer criminals later in life, but not provable by either side.
If you really want to lower the crime rate, do away with the meaningless war on drugs and legalize prostitution.
It's also completely irrelevant; abortion is not allowed because of crime stats but because it is the individual woman's right.
