I estimate a model with the ratio of infants relinquished to total pregnancies and the ratio of infants relinquished to nonmarital pregnancies as a function of controls for observed heterogeneity across states over time and abortion access variables including parental involvement laws and restrictions on public funding.
Abortion Access is negative and statistically significant at the 1% level in every specification, as well as those specifications using total births, nonmarital births, and single females in the denominator of the dependent variable.(14) A 10% increase in the percentage of counties with abortion providers will decrease the ratio of infants relinquished to total pregnancies by 0.5 points (a 9% decrease from the mean) and the ratio of infants relinquished to nonmarital pregnancies by 2.2 points (a 13% decrease from the mean).
