So you are forced to continue your pregnancy and give birth. What could possibly go wrong?

'Miracle' Newborn Whose Mom Died During Childbirth Will Be Taken Off Life Support, Dad Says

https://people.com/human-interest/matthew-accurso-jr-to-be-taken-off-life-support/

I don’t particularly like the tone of some of the statements in this article, including the father/widower stating he “gave” his now deceased wife four babies, but this is a tragedy. So often people forget that pregnancy and/or childbirth can result in death. She leaves behind her husband and three daughters. An article I read said she was happy to be having her first boy.

1. "So often people forget that pregnancy and/or childbirth can result in death."

Abortions are actually much safer than pregnancy and delivery.

3. Thanks For Reminding Us Of The Importance Of Gynecology And Obstetrics!

Tragic, to be sure!

Per the GOP, the best way to address this issue is not to address it at all.

4. No pregnancy is normal until it is over.

I can't help but wonder if the husband prevailed upon his wife to "try just one more time" for a boy.
