The Trump and Republican ban on abortions after 20 weeks will put even more women’s lives in danger. The United States already has the highest maternal death rate in developed countries of mothers during and just after delivery, and it’s climbed a staggering 27% between 2000 and 2014. It’s more than three times the rate of the United Kingdom, and about eight times the rates of Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.
As an OB, it’s clear to me that anti-choice politicians don’t have women’s health in mind. 20 week bans hurt women and families.
