Axios reports (strange formatting is all theirs, baby):
Alabama, which has one of the country’s lowest COVID vaccination rates, recorded more deaths in 2020 than births — a first in state history.
- Alabama State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris says it could happen again in 2021 — the state is literally shrinking, Alabama News Network reports.
- The Yellowhammer State had 65,000 deaths last year, compared to 58,000 births — a gap of 7,000.
Harris said: “We’re going to have around six or seven thousand more people who died in our state this past year than any year we have ever had, going back to the year 1900. That’s how far I’ve asked our staff to go back.” (AL.com)
I’m only guessing that they address this with an abortion ban.
