NYT Contributor: “America is in the midst of a maternal health crisis”

06:45

MSNBC’s Richard Lui discusses the U.S.’s maternal mortality rate with Elizabeth Gay, co-director of the Black Mamas Matter Alliance, and New York Times contributor Anushay Hossain. So many mothers in the U.S. die in childbirth, Gay says, because resources aren’t allocated equally. According to Hossain, the vast majority of the deaths are preventable. “It’s just a matter of agreeing and deciding that we are not going to allow women to die in childbirth in the year 2019 in America or anywhere around the world,” she said.
