According to 2006 data from the Guttmacher Institute, red states accounted for eight of the 10 states with the highest teenage birthrates. …
According to the Census Bureau’s Statistical Abstract, states that went Republican in November accounted for eight of the 10 states with the highest divorce rates in 2006.
