Texas has the highest maternal death rate, which increased with it's attack on abortion clinics.

A Democrat credited the Republican governor (click here) for highlighting maternal mortality and then made a claim about Texas leading nationally in a disturbing way.
Houston Rep. Shawn Thierry noted in a press release circulated the day after Gov. Greg Abbott set the agenda for the special legislative session starting July 18, 2017, that Abbott authorized maternal mortality as a potential topic after Thierry and Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham, had urged him to do so.
Thierry said: "It was clear that a special session was going to happen and we now know that our Texas mothers are dying during childbirth at the highest rates in the nation. This time around, we cannot afford for party politics to stand in the way of resolving this crisis."
Abbott included "extending maternal mortality task force" in his session "call," he said, to allow lawmakers to maintain the state’s advisory Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Task Force into 2023. The group, created by the 2013 Legislature, is otherwise abolished as of September 2019....

Pregnancy is a medical condition that requires REVERENCE to the woman. If a woman decides to end a pregnancy the primary worry is being sure the uterus is healthy after the abortion. Abortion options need to be returned to women in Texas. More than likely, a woman with an abortion has a healthier post procedure uterus than one that delivered a baby.

Texas has no respect for the intricacies of a woman's body, life or choices. What support is provided to the families with deceased mothers?

Doctors, nurses, researchers and state lawmakers (click here) are investigating a mystery -- why Texas women die after giving birth at a higher rate than anywhere else in the country.

"It's hard to remember details because I was pretty upset," said Chris Zavala, 39, when recounting what happened to his wife Michelle last month.

She was 35, active and adventurous.

"You always hear about love at first sight, and it sounds corny, but the first time I saw her, I was done for,” he admitted.

Their first child, Clara, was born mid-July. She was healthy, six pounds and four ounces.

At 7 days old, they took her to pose for newborn pictures, never imagining their first family portraits would also be their last....
