That’s interesting. I’d love to hear your story.
You certainly have a point about mothers’ health. I’d be curious to know about the current rates of such things like gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia compared to what it used to be, the mortality rate of mothers who had IVF against those who didn’t, etc.
Thank you for another story from Reality.
The issue here was not infant mortality, but MOTHER mortality.
Yes it is and that is why it isn’t a good idea to read and post in a hurry which I was as I had to scoot out for an appointment. However, at least it was a good example of how better record keeping and better health care can be manipulated to look like worse care. I looked thru Ann’s 10 part health care series to see if she covered mother mortality and did not find it.
“if she covered mother mortality and did not find it.”
Gee, I guess that’s because it’s not an issue! Only true-believer US-hating commies with no common sense would even bring it up!
I wonder if they have factored in the tendancy for women to wait until later in life to bear children, the great increase in obesity, and the increased rate of caesarian section deliveries.
In the U.S., Too Many BABIES Dying During Abortions.
The real tragedy is that too many babies are dying trying to have mothers.
Amnesty advocating on behalf of abortionists? =.=
Wonder how much the latest trend of women having children well past their *birthing* years plays into these numbers?
“Where there are no tangible medical complications of pregnancy, the risks of childbirth in older women are no greater than in younger women” British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Volume 108, Issue 9, September 2001.
The article on this thread says the maternal mortality rate of young black women is 400% higher than white women. Not a lot of black women are having their first over age 40.
Amnesty International’s real agenda.
