Black women are 243% more likely to die from pregnancy or childbirth related causes than white women. We can’t address solutions to #MaternalMortality without discussing solutions to the systemic racism buried deep within our nation’s health care system. #MaternalJustice
In 2014, the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination urged the US to eliminate racial disparities in the repro health field & collect data for #MaternalMortality - yet no systems exist. We need #MaternalJustice before more mothers fall btwn the cracks.
It's an injustice of unacceptable proportion that the richest, most powerful, most innovative nation on earth would allow skin color to impact something as profoundly universal as pregnancy and childbirth. We can - and must - do better. #MaternalJustice
