Every day, 2 to 3 women in the United States die from complications of pregnancy and childbirth. About 50% of these deaths could have been prevented with better access to quality maternal health care.
This is not just an accident; this is a violation of human rights.
What can YOU do to help?
Amnesty International’s Lobby Week is coming up. During the first week of May, volunteers from across the country will meet with their Senators and Representatives to encourage them to take action to stop these preventable maternal deaths.
We need your help to ensure the elected officials who represent you have the facts and can help to pass strong legislation to reduce maternal mortality.
