Abortion death toll in Kansas drops, but nearly 10,000 still die
I guess I should be happy that less babies died in my state in 2009 than any of the previous 20 years?
According to reported figures, the 9,472 abortions in 2009 were the lowest reported number since 1990. There were 1,171, or about 11 percent, fewer abortions last year than the year before, the largest one-year decline in more than a decade. This is largely because George Tiller was murdered and therefore could not "practice".
Abortion numbers declining is a good thing, but I find the reminder that approximately 200,000 babies have been put to death in Kansas since 1990 staggering and shocking.
And to think, we're a small state with relatively low abortion numbers. God help us all.
