Texas ... The most dangerous place in the world ... for mothers!


Texas ...

https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...ive-healthcare

GOP politics is killing women in Texas. Proof is in the numbers. Read the article. Texas has the highest maternal mortality rate in the world. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...linics-funding

Quote:
This dubious honor is a recent one, with a study showing that the rate of women dying from pregnancy complications doubled from 2010-2014. Itís not a coincidence, of course, that there was another major happening around womenís health in Texas during those years: the deliberate closure of clinics that provide abortion and a drastic funding cut to the stateís family planning budget.
And they claim they closed those clinics ... to protect women.

Such deadly lies,

It's just an opinion piece that argues for more Socialism.

Nothing here of merit.

Dig behind the numbers she gives and you'll find that there are and will always be places for women to go to get free health care.
All she argues is that putting the brakes on willy nilly abortions somehow hurts women, so I guess we have to buy into the idea that killing tens of thousands of babies is a walk in the park, right?

By the way, in case you're interested, Chicago is the most dangerous place in the US for black teenagers. She should do an article about that.

And you'll find that the numbers are bumped up by the numbers of illegals

The real goal here is to argue that if the State won't pay for moms to kill their kids, that's a bad thing

Exactly. Radical leftists want global socialism and federal govt. single payer medical care. That way states rights will be effectively dead.

The title of the thread is a lie, and the lie is repeated in the body of the original post.

The original OP is a bald faced lie, perpetuated by a reporter who has a Socialist axe to grind.

If anyone wants to dive into some cold hard facts, they can spend quite a bit of time on the linked site below, and also be prepared that the facts show the OP article to be a lie.
I'm sure that one of the usual Lefties will pick and choose among the data for something they like, but in composite, Texas seems like a pretty darn nice place to get health care... for everybody, including women.

Are you really a mother if the thing you want to kill is not a child ?

What regressive have done in Texas is not just "putting the brakes on Willy nilly abortions". They have gone much, much further.

So much right wing piffle posted here.

But no refutation of the numbers. So ...

Texas remains the deadliest place, in the whole world, for moms.

Sad, that an American state no less, holds this distinction.

Shameful. Just shameful.

You either misread the story or.......something else, which would be shameful, just shameful on your part. Your statements about Texas being the deadliest place, in the whole world, for moms is simply not true. You only need to add one word to each of your"deadliest in the world" statements to make them true.
There's no doubt that Texas has seen a tremendous increase in maternal deaths, and it should be investigated and corrected as much as is possible. Your hyperbole though smacks of pure partisan left wing piffle. Why do you feel the need to post inaccurate statements when your linked stories express the facts correctly.

yeah, other than the refutation of the numbers.

And this is an example of the 'smart' people? People who cannot accept facts contradicting their claims? You want vote on who to run other people's lives when you can't even handle facts you don't like?
