The rate of women dying due to pregnancy has steadily increased in the United States over the last three decades:
Since the Republican seizure of a majority of state legislatures in 2010, Texas has been a leader in restricting women’s access to abortion and other women’s health services. Since 2010, Texas has achieved the highest maternal mortality rate in the developed world:
California “does not have any of the major types of abortion restrictions—such as waiting periods, mandated parental involvement or limitations on publicly funded abortions—often found in other states.” Since 2003, California’s maternal mortality rates have reflected the international downward trend:
Pregnant women are dying less frequently in California and in much of the rest of the world. Pregnancy is killing more women in Texas.
