The United States is the most dangerous place in the developed world to deliver a baby. Each year, about 700 American women die and 50,000 women are severely injured due to complications related to childbirth. If you are a Black woman in the United States, it is even more dangerous to give birth. Chapter 1 reports on ways to save mothers’ lives. Chapters 2 and 3 examine how state and federal policies are impacting residents’ access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare services, including abortion.
