Deadly Delivery The Maternal Health Care Crisis in the USA

I hope that Amnesty International’s Report, Deadly Delivery The Maternal Health Care Crisis in the USA, will get extensive coverage. It is a document that talks about "the right to life" as something that applies to pregnant women and new mothers. It makes clear that inadequate prenatal care is a sign of government failure, not a reason to urine drug test a pregnant woman. And, it clarifies that the real threats to maternal/fetal/child health are from failed government polices, not pregnant women or legal abortion.

A journalist asked if I thought the title was an "over-exaggeration." My answer was that if you are privileged enough to have access to the best of America’s health care system it might seem that way, but if you are one of the tens of millions of people with little to no health care coverage then the title might actually be a profound understatement.

Please spread the word about this very valuable report.

Best Wishes to All,
