Lobby For Maternal Health In The US

Download PDF

Although the United States spends $98 billion a year on health care (more than any other country), women in the US actually have a greater risk of dying from pregnancy-related complications than women in 49 countries.

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.

So stand up for human rights and maternal health by signing up to coordinate or join a delegation to meet your elected officials. With your visits you can help save lives.
