— The Kansas birth rate was up last year, while the death rate was down.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment released its vital statistics for 2007 on Monday. It showed the birth rate was up nearly 3 percent over the previous year. The death rate dropped by three-tenths of a percent for the same period.

The health department said the state averaged 115 live births and 67 deaths each day last year.

It also said the state averaged 52 marriages and 26 divorces each day, an increase in both categories over 2006.

Meanwhile, the state average for abortions dropped to 30 each day.

See Confrontation, I on the other hand was wondering how many of these people will end up moving to another state because they can't find a decent job in Kansas. 30 abortions a day! Especially compared to 115 live births today this number seems alarmingly high. I wonder how many of these were people from Nebraska or other states.

I wonder how many of these babies were born to illegals? How many of these deliveries did the taxpayers have to cover?
