Maternal Death Rate in States With Abortion Bans Nearly 3 Times Higher

The big picture: The U.S. has the highest maternal mortality rate among developed nations, and government officials and health experts are concerned that conditions will worsen now that a federal right to abortion has been struck down.

By the numbers: The report found that maternal mortality rates in states with bans was “significantly higher” than in supportive states. In 2018, the maternal mortality rate in banned states was nearly two times higher than in supportive states, by 2021, it was 2.4 times higher.

Of note: The report also found that infants born in states with abortion bans were 30% more likely to die than those in supportive states.
