What they don't mention

Experts: U.S. childbirth deaths on rise

Check boxes on all death certificates about the woman's pregnancy status may be resulting in more deaths being identified. So we can't be sure that there is an increase in maternal mortality. It may just be increased reporting.

That said, there may well be an increase in actual deaths. But the article looking at factors didn't don't even mention abortion, which no doubt contributes in a multitude of ways:

1, Aborting earlier pregnancies, concieved during peak-childbearing years, deliberately postpones births until the woman is older and at higher risk.

2. Abortion-related infertility causes further delays in childbearing until even later in the woman's reproductive life.

3. Abortion complications such as uterine lacerations and cervical tears place women at higher risk during subesquent pregnancies.

4. Even abortions that appear uncomplicated increase the risk of placenta previa and other life-threatening obstetric complictions in future pregnancies.

But we can't say these things. The MSM rule about abortion is, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything."
