  1. Again points that were not raised in the news clip and need of consideration. However I can't imagine that those facts can account for all of the disparity between the black v white maternal fatalities. Thanks for the input, it does lighten some of the grey areas.
  2. What was that he was saying about "righteous indignation"? That dude cracks me up sometimes. πŸ˜…
  3. Thanks, that's interesting information that wasn't mentioned in the BBC's newsclip. And it's why I put the story up for discussion. Have you any thoughts as to why the black mothers are 2 or 3 times more likely to die than the white mothers?
  4. And you should get a life ...
  5. It was an article that I read on the BBC website (front page) which I found quite surprising. I thought I would offer it up for consideration and opinion of the Posters here who, I would have thought, would have had strong opinions on the matter. Clearly, it isn't very concerning to you, and if that's general then it is probably why the problem is getting worse in the US while it is getting less in the rest of the developing world. As regards America sucklng, the UK doesn't come out that well in the tables either, but a least it is going in the right direction.
  6. He'd need an ouija board πŸ‘»or a medium to try to. πŸ˜‰
  7. πŸ˜’ Psst! I know of some chickens going cheep, if anyone's peckish.
  8. Very disturbingly, while the maternal death rate is decreasing in the rest of the developing world, it is dramatically increasing in the US.
  9. No, it isn't, I deleted/amended it 4 hours ago.
  10. You can buy a good amount of whisky for $1500, enough to get you through the rapture at least. πŸ‘
  11. While progress has been made to curb death rates among women in other countries, the US has seen an increase since the year 2000. Interesting keypoint, Texas is the capital state' of maternal deaths in the US. It is also the capital state for uninsured health care citizens. Worrying keypoint, black mothers are 3 times more likely to die than white mothers are.
  12. Fair point, post deleted and sent as a PM.
  13. There was absolutely nothing false or against the TOS in that post, but you can guarantee that it will be deleted.
  14. How do you suppose Jack the Ripper would have rated via Sprightly's metric?
  15. For once , one of your posts that I can actually agree with, and I was alive then.
