VP Kamala Harris claims black American women are more likely to die from child birth due to racism

Kamala Harris on Tuesday declared that black women in the US are more likely to die from child birth because of “systemic racial inequities.”

“Black women in our country are facing a maternal health crisis,” the Vice President breathlessly said.

“Black women are 2-3 times more likely to die in connection with child birth than other women. “We know the primary reasons why—systemic racial inequities and implicit bias—and the consequences are both very real.”
