    So in another words, you’ve done nothing as I expected. I guess it’s easier to sit around bitching on the Internet expecting everyone to foot the bill for you. How very typical and predictable of a thieving Marxist.

    That does not prove your point.

    Your assertion remains unproven given that you've shown no connection.

    Texas has been ruby red for quite a while, but it is becoming purple, and will be blue before you realize it.

    Yea, as the racist and corrupt Democratic Party transforms America into a third world country we will be having more and more third world country problems.
    We can look to Venezuela to see our future under Democrat rule.

    No need to look at Venezuela. Under repub rule Texas has the highest pregnancy related death rate in the world NOW. Texas has some of the best hospitals and doctors in the world, so it's not a matter of not having the ability to reduce the rate, it's the lack of adequate health care for the poor. Repubs want to reduce access to health care even more.

    Why don't you read the OP and go to the CDC and investigate yourself. I do not have time to feed you a bottle.

    Sean Blackwell, M.D., explained that the primary issue isn’t that medical care in Texas hospitals is worsening or below par, but rather that too many women are not receiving care.

    “Every maternal death is a tragedy and we should strive for a case rate of zero,” said Blackwell, maternal-fetal medicine specialist at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital and department chair for obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive sciences at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth. “But when you look at the data, and all of the improvements in safety and quality on labor and delivery units within Texas hospitals, it suggests that the potential increase in maternal deaths is not occurring at delivery or in the immediate postpartum period, but the time period from 42 to 365 days after birth—thus, outside the hospital. If anything, I would argue our hospitals are getting better. The major current opportunity for improvements is related to making sure women have access to care, especially our most vulnerable patients who are underserved and have chronic or severe medical conditions. We sorely need to have the system infrastructure and the ability to follow these women through that first year post delivery.”

    For low-income women who qualify for Medicaid, benefits are available during pregnancy and up to only two months after birth, creating an abrupt end of care despite evidence that women remain at risk for the first year after their pregnancy has ended.

    The task force ranked cardiac events and hypertension/eclampsia as the first and third most common causes of maternal deaths in Texas, statistics experts believe may be exacerbated by a general population that is growing unhealthier across the board, making pregnancies more complex.

    “The number of women we see who have a BMI over 40, who have diabetes and hypertension, is definitely rising,” Blackwell said. “Today, well over half of women who are having babies in the state of Texas are obese. Our population is getting sicker.”
