Lots of Political Interest in Maternal Mortality

There will be discussion about Maternal Mortality as we head in to the 2020 elections.  Here is the Democratic conversation.

Read about how Kamala Harris plans to address maternal mortality. Notice that she calls out Implicit Bias and Systemic Racism as factors related to maternal mortality.  Texas would do well to do the same.

The Republican response has been to scale back Medicaid and in Texas to rely on the Healthy Texas Women program.

Is there any middle ground?
