    U.S. Has The Worst Rate Of Maternal Deaths In The Developed World

    and is, coincidentally, the only modern nation without universal health care and the one that spends the most on health care.... that is a coincidence, right?

    Long on fret short on details as usual.
    Food for thought... how many third worlders have poured into here in the last 9 years ? Think any of them read "What to expect when you're expecting" ?

    Propublica is a left-wing extremist news site.

    I wouldn't believe their communist propaganda.

    This argument gets made in Texas...but when you look at what "maternal mortality" means on those studies, it is often mothers up to a year after giving birth, in some cases who die drug overdoses.

    I always take these claims with a grain of salt if the full data set is not shared.

    This is a fake news story.

    Figure it how you want.

    Do you see this as a right wing/left wing issue? How so? Is one side against improving the chances of women to deliver healthy babies and stay healthy themselves?

    This issue has nothing to do with women's health.

    You are naive if you think so.

    Women dying in childbirth has nothing to do with women's health. Must be a left wing plot, then.

    Coming from Propublica ...... definitely a left-wing plot.

    But, hey ..... I'm sure you still believe if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor ....

    Amirite?

    Perhaps partly.

    When you say that mortality in childbirth has nothing to do with women's health, then no.

    When you make health statistics into a left wing vs. right wing issue, then no again.

    Here's more, from another site. There is a lot more of course, much more than could be posted on a discussion board.

    You have had four days to support your lies, and *********. However, like the mindless right winger you are, there is nothing here. Kind of like the dead space between your ears.

    And again you demonstrate your lack of knowledge on most any subject. Can't prove your lies, just change the topic. Typical for the right wing mindless.

    Telling the truth about your stupidity is not a personal attack.
