Birthing Justice

Birthing Justice

Denise Pines

Birthing Justice examines the structures and systems that determine Black women and their babies' mortality.

As the battle over women’s bodies heats up, Birthing Justice examines an often overlooked crisis: American women today are dying during childbirth at higher rates than in 1987, and African American women are up to four times more likely to die of pregnancy-related causes than their white counterparts. Birthing Justice examines why Black women are dying at such astronomical rates, and what is being done to prevent these deaths and the violent birthing experiences that many Black women are having even if they do live.
