There is no excuse for the lack of organized data surrounding #MaternalMortality and its racial disparities. Black women are still 3-4x more likely to die from pregnancy complications, even when you control for socioeconomic differences. #MaternalJustice
Hard truth is that this issue is bigger than a health chart. It's about how + why the voices of black patients are discounted or denied. Not a phenomenon limited to health care by any means - a societal stain this country desperately must address. #MaternalJustice
While I appreciate state-level efforts to make #MaternalJustice a priority - CA has made great strides with inequity in maternal care, and my home state of MA is studying autopsy reports & medical charts of those who suffered maternal deaths - we must do better.
