in Alabama, these 25 state senators who have the power to lower the infant mortality rate ( I can cite specifics on how that can be accomplished) who pretend to be pro-life are responsible for the state’s 9.3 infant mortality. That means that in Alabama, if the state senators who passed the law which would ban legal abortion ( and endanger women’s lives who would use illegal means to do so [ coat hangers]. The New Yorker points to a recent study that regardless of whether an abortion is legal or not, the number of abortions stays constant.
In the Orwellian world of the 25 state senate, pro-life is pro-death in a state where every year three additional babies die each year than do so on average in the US. Pro life my ass.
Here in PA’s Alabama, the county infant mortality rates are shockingly higher than the US national average.
Trump’s support of pro-life means that our President is pro-death.
What follows is a superb video taking you inside the neonatal ward of a hospital where babies die at great cost right before your eyes. The principal cause of infant death is low birthweight. The principal cause of low birthweight is anemia. If every woman in the US received pre- natal care ( even if it were only administered by a nurse or physician’s assistant and if every woman with anemia were treated properly with low-cost iron pills, the number of babies dying in the US would decrease considerably and health care costs would plummet. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pond of cure.
I dare you to watch this video without weeping. I weep every time loudly and out of control.
