Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) is urging Democrats to the polls, saying women are dying because the left is losing elections.
The Democratic National Committee vice chairman spoke at a progressive training session on Friday and said the party needs to triumph at the ballot box for the sake of women's health.
Women are dying because we are losing elections, Ellison said. We dont have the right to lose a damn election. We have to win. We have to win.
Maternal morality is rising in states like Missouri and Texas, Ellison said.
The United States has one of the highest rates of maternal deaths among wealthy and developed countries.
In 2013, there were 28 maternal deaths per 100,000 births in the United States.
Missouri has the one of the highest maternal death rates in the nation, with 19.9 deaths per 100,00 births in 2016.
That rate places Missouri on par with countries like Belize and worse than poorer countries like Moldova and Costa Rica, the Kansas City Star reported last December.
The leading causes of maternal death in Missouri are all cardiac-related. The state's high rates of smoking and obesity worsen those complications.
The risks are magnified if a woman doesn't see a doctor regularly during pregnancy, like the 17.5 percent of Missouri women who received no prenatal care during their first trimester, the Star reported.
Last month, Ellison urged Democrats to support single-payer healthcare.
I certainly hope so.....................
I would hope morality is rising in a lot more places.
And Babies are living:-) Out with the old and in with the New!
Beat me by 3 seconds!
Does that mean the Democrat Party has awoken about abortion?
Don’t hold your breath. They’re still aborting their future voters like there’s no tomorrow.
...vote Democrat and get two chili dogs and a bus ride....
Democrats: because being responsible for your own welfare is hard.
Pre-separation infants are dying because crazy Godless ghouls think it’s just fine to slaughter them instead of birthing them.
Keith, women are dying in abortion clinics; particularly the women getting vacuumed from the womb.
And Keith, sheri’s law tends to shorten female life spans too; particularly the ones found guilty of being rape victims. You know about this, being a practitioner of said law.
I think he means women are dying from abortions at Planned Parenthood..when women go into PP they dont come out, actually they do, in BODY BAGS
All this is is gender pandering.
I thought it was tax cuts and net neutrality?
Of course it is...and it works.
And here I thought it was all due to Global Warming. Who knew?
Keith Ellison, you are a damned liar.
Liberal acquaintance to me before Obamacare - “We need Single Payer, People are dying in the Streets”.
Me to Liberal acquaintance - “How many dead people did you step over on your way to work today?”
Boys and Girls are dying (before they are born) because Democrats are winning elections.
Lets rename them the pander party.
