Lent 23: Child birth

True Grit: Women Taking On the World, for God's Sake

Bolivia has the highest maternal death rate in pregnancy throughout all of Latin America. Only a quarter of women in country areas have medical help during labor. In India about 30,000 women die each year during and after childbirth; 140 women die as a result of childbirth in Britain.

Wondering what this is all about? Read my post explaining why and how I’m commemorating Lent this year.
