    Texas has highest pregnancy-related death rate in developed world, study says

    Lawmakers in Texas largely failed to take any significant action to address the state's skyrocketing rate of pregnancy-related deaths just months after researchers found it to be the highest in not only the U.S., but the developed world.

    Legislators introduced proposals to address the issue after a University of Maryland-led study found that the state's maternal mortality rate doubled between 2010 and 2012. But several key measures didn't even make it to a vote, falling victim to Republican infighting over other issues.

    This is due to not expanding Medicaid and cuts in their PP. Aren't you so proud to be a Texan. I remember their Church shooting not long ago, hard to feel sorry for those Christians who vote for Republicans that take healthcare away from those in need. Disgusting.

    Its like they commit murder and abortions, they actually are killing pregnant women and their fetuses. Its unbelievable.

    You voters are involved in this. Due to lack of healthcare.

    This OP from someone who defends abortion, which has a 100% death rate. In defending that savage practice, you forfeit any credibility in shedding crocodile tears over any other cause of death which is dwarfed by the holocaust of abortion.

    Everything the republican party does is to hurt, kill and to shame us as a nation.

    These bastards really love the idea of us becoming a third world toilet.

    As the Corrupt and Racist Democratic Party transforms America into a third world country we will have more and more third world country statistics.
