Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

UNICEF on maternal health

CBC reports that the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund says in its annual report that a woman in the developing world is 300 times more likely to die due to pregnancy or childbirth-related complications than a woman in the developed world. The ten worst countries are Niger, Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Chad, Angola, Liberia, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Guinea-Bissau, and Mali. All except Afghanistan are African.

I agree that the measured offered in the article would help reduce maternal death. In addition, legalizing abortion allows it to be done safely in sanitary condition. Of course, since some people have objections to abortion, it’s even better to engage in female education and to educate people on family planning. Plus, barrier methods reduce the spread of AIDS.
