Friends,

 

Gail Rogers on Linda Villarosa's 4/14/2018 New York Times Magazine article,
"Hidden Toll: Black Mothers and Babies Are in a Life-or-Death Crisis":
https://universalistfriends.org/weblog/black-mothers-and-babies.

 

Linda Villarosa <https://www.lindavillarosa.com/>  reports that not only are
infant mortality rates for black infants more than double that for white
infants, but that this situation is worse than in 1850. She writes that a
college-educated black mother is more likely to die related to childbirth
than a white mother with an 8th grade education, and points to systemic
racism as being a likely root cause.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blessings,

Mike
