As the title states apparently Texas is at borderline 3rd world country rates when it comes to maternal deaths. A number of things could be the cause but Texas has a screwed up health system to begin with so it's not really that big of a surprise I suppose.

Probably has something to do with the fact they're right next to a third world country.
Edit:




Top causes of death for moms during that period were cardiac events, drug overdoses and hypertension/eclampsia

California has lots of Mexicans and they are absolutely thriving by comparison...

Also that article you posted is from almost a year ago.

Most of the deaths are from Mexicans crossing the border...

When you treat women's healthcare as a taboo, things like this will happen.

The study both articles are talking about was done in 2012. Your article says "Texas hasn't done anything in the five years since this study." The other guy's article says "That study was bullshit." Put them together, and maybe Texas didn't do anything because the study was bullshit.

So, you see one article contradicting another, but instead of remaining neutral and concluding you need more information, somehow you come up with the suggestion that the article is untrue?

Did you flip a coin?

If everyone crossing the border were actually shot, it would save a lot of lives in the USA.


How?

The more obvious reason for why, as the article says, "Texas hasn't done anything in the five years since this study" is that the study offered no reasons for the conclusion. Without reasons, there can be no actionable items, so nothing could be done.

This is a stretch and a half. Women's health care is all the rage everywhere in the USA. This, despite 80% of gender specific diseases being in men, a life expectancy 5-7 years shorter for men, and a much higher suicide rate among men. There are seven federal institutions devoted entirely to women's health and none devoted entirely to men's health. Saying that women's health care is taboo anywhere in the US is rather 'out there'.
