The architect of the Affordable Care Act who is the focus of much controversy following a series of admissions that the passage of President Obama’s signature healthcare legislation could only be achieved by lying to the American people published a paper during the Clinton presidency noting that legalizing abortion had saved Uncle Sam $14 billion in assistance to poor mothers and cut the crime rate.

As reported by WorldNetDaily, Jonathan Gruber, an MIT professor of economics — who wrote the paper (see it here[PDF]) with fellow economists Phillip Levine of Wellesley College and Douglas Staiger of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government — “argued… that without the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, ‘marginal children’ would have been born to many poor mothers.”

In addition, the trio argued that statistics indicated that such children would be 70 percent more likely to live in a single-parent home, 40 percent more likely to live in poverty, 50 percent more likely to need welfare benefits and 35 percent more likely to die as an infant.
