Potential Births

Numbers are often hard to imagine. Dead babies shock you into unfortunate attention (see @ the Tea Party). The idea behind this graphic was to pair the average birth rate each year in the United States with the numberof people unwillingly sterilized in each state. While the number is just an estimate,the idea is to show the inhibited births against the will of the potential parent. The graph attempts to be as simple, clear, and duck free. Slider in progress.
